Postscript: It is with sadness we advise that Shane Dwyer has resigned his role as Director of the NCE and CEC. Shane’s dedication to the ministry of evangelisation, and his giftedness in expressing the beauty and challenges of our Catholic Faith will be greatly missed. He is looking forward to working in the Archdiocese of Brisbane in a related role.
