FR SOFATZIS' ORDINATION
AND PAROUSIA PODCAST

We give thanks to Almighty God for the Priestly Ordination of Fr Thomas Sofatzis FSSP on the 8th August 2020 by His Lordship, Richard Umbers, Auxiliary Bishop of Sydney. This joyous event took place in St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney.

Readers may be interested in the above Parousia Podcast in which Phillip Brooks is joined with Fr Thomas Sofatzis to discuss the sacred Priesthood of Jesus Christ, ordinations in the midst of Covid, the importance of beauty in the liturgy, Church architecture and sacred music.

Fr Sofatzis grew up in Sydney attending his home parish of St Bernadette’s in Clemton Park before discovering the Traditional Latin Mass at the Church of the Maternal Heart of Mary in Lewisham and subsequently joining the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter. Fr Sofatzis had only been ordained a month at the time of this recording.
