The Mission: Reaching Out (2009)
On Tasmania’s northwest coast a new parish priest, Father John, arrives with his little white dogs. Father Felix now works for him, but even the helpful influence of the Filipino housekeeper’s cooking classes, along with regular speech lessons, aren’t smoothing out the difficulties. In Hobart, Father Christopher is lucky to have found a place in the cathedral choir as Father Brian is finding it very hard to let go of his workload in the parish. While in Launceston, Father Kene has discovered the local tennis club as well as traveling to parishes without priests all along the east coast of Tasmania. When a rural church closes its doors after 107 years of baptisms, weddings, funerals and worship, it’s a profound shock for the missionaries.
