FAREWELL FR GERRY!
With sadness we convey the news of the death Monday 30th May of Fr Gerald (Gerry) Dullard OSA. Fr Gerry spent the last 20 years or more of his ministry and retirement in South Yarra and endeared himself to parishioners and neighbours alike.
Fr Gerald served in a number of parishes in Victoria, Sydney, parishes and a secondary college in Queensland and, of course, was a classmate from seminary days of Fr John Barry OSA.
A Requiem Mass was celebrated at St Joseph’s, South Yarra on Tuesday 14th June 11am and again at St Mary’s Church, Echuca on Thursday 16th June 11am followed by burial at Pinegrove Cemetery. You may read a longer tribute here.
