MEET OUR FRIARS

Fr Dean Mathieson

I am the current parish priest of Sts Peter and Paul.

Br Michael O'Dwyer

I am the current guardian of the friar's house here at Sts Peter and Paul parish. I joined the Capuchin Friars in 1977. What I love most about being a Capuchin is working and being with the people I serve. I feel at home here at the parish because it has such a rich history of involvement in helping the needy, especially in the Open House and other ministries. What are my general hobbies and interests? No time for that! Whenever I'm not working, you can usually find me either praying or sleeping.

Fr John Spiteri

I joined the Capuchin Friars on the 14th oh February 1973. I chose to join because I wanted to be like St Francis, and I haven't looked back since. What I love about being a Capuchin is living in fraternity with my brothers, serving the poor, and celebrating the sacraments. Ever since coming into this parish, I have constantly felt the welcomeness and the warm-heartedness of the parishioners here, and deeply moved by their involvement and willingness to support us in our mission of creating a vibrate and effective community space. When I am not working, I enjoy going on walks, listening to classical music, and doing some writing.

Fr Bernard Morawski

I joined the Capuchin Friars on the 16th of July 1985. The two main things I love being a Capuchin is living in fraternity with my brothers and participating in the special mission of the order. What I love most about this parish is the openness of the people here. In my spare time, my personal hobbies includes reading and thinking about astronomy and cosmology.
