On Friday 23 August 2019, Monsignor Graham Schmitzer commenced his retirement, which coincided with the date of his Golden Jubilee. The event was marked by a Mass concelebrated by approx 20 clergy, followed by a function held at Wests Illawarra. A great night was had by all, and Monsignor Graham had a wonderful time celebrating his retirement and 50 years as Priest, with nearly 300 guests.
