Like several other churches of Broken Bay Diocese in Sydney, Sacred Heart Church Pymble is modern, fan-shaped and invisible from the adjoining busy roadway, even despite its high tower.
this morning, the principal Mass at 9.30 am was immensely crowded as parishioners of all ages - but very many young ones - gathered not only for Sunday <ass, but at this Mass because it was the farewell to our much-loved Curate Father Roman Wroblewski S.D.S.
Fater Roman is an accomplished Scripture scholar as his preaching attests, he is a very devout Celebrant of the Sacred Liturgy, and a hugely effective Chaplain to Youth including part-time involvement in Australian Catholic University in North Sydney.
