MacKillop Parish (Charlestown, Gateshead and Redhead), along with family and friends, gathered in huge numbers to celebrate this wonderful milestone.
Following Mass, a gathering was held in MacKillop Pastoral Centre, with food enough to "feed the 5000". You can view a gallery of photos from the day below.
The parishioners of MacKillop Parish would like to thank Fr Bob for his wonderful pastoral service and leadership.
