Fr Lawrie Moate SDB

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fr Lawrie Moate SDB from the Community at Salesian College Chadstone. He passed away at 8:25pm on Wednesday 21st September at Cabrini Hospital.

Fr Lawrie joined us in 2019. Although the time in our community was short, his contribution was felt deeply through the relationships he built so quickly with staff and students. He was a person of great wisdom, humour and good will.

He committed his life to the service of others, in particular, the marginalised, and made a considerable difference to the lives of all those he met and worked with. His determination was remarkable, despite ill heath, serving God until the end.

We ask for your prayers for him and his family.

Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
Amen.
