Prayers by family, friends, clergy, parishioners and the Sisters of St Joseph asking St Mary MacKillop for her intercession for the recovery of youthful Wollongong priest, Father David Catterall in his challenge with cancer have been answered not once but twice.

Now Fr David, who trained at the Seminary of the Good Shepherd, Homebush, has been appointed founding priest of the first new parish to be established by the Diocese of Wollongong over the past 21 years.
