Anniversary of the death of Bishop Bede Heather (2021)
Today, we remember the first Bishop of Parramatta, the late Bishop Bede Heather, who passed away on 25 February 2021.
Bishop Bede was born on December 7, 1928 and ordained a priest on July 15, 1951.
On 8 April 1986, Pope St John Paul II erected the Diocese of Parramatta and on 19 May in the same year Bishop Bede Heather took possession of St Patrick’s Cathedral in Parramatta and the Diocese of Parramatta was launched.
Bishop Heather served the Diocese of Parramatta until his resignation on 10 July 1997.
In your charity, please pray for the Repose of the Soul of Bishop Bede and remember his family in your prayers.
