Speaking at the Catholic Education Western Australia Commissioning and Acknowledgement of System Leaders Mass, Friday 17 November, at the Chapel of St Michael the Archangel, Leederville, Archbishop Costelloe emphasised to the teachers and principals present, the need to be faithful to the high ideals of our Christian faith.
It is very characteristic of our Catholic tradition that we honour the saints, look to their lives and witness for inspiration and example, and rely on their prayers in times of need and distress, Archbishop Costelloe has said, speaking at the Mass to honour the relics of St John Bosco at St Mary’s Cathedral.

Archbishop Costelloe encouraged Members to believe that what the Archangel Gabriel said to the Blessed Virgin Mary is true for them today: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow.”
Speaking to parishioners at the Ellenbrook Parish St Helena’s Church, Archbishop Costelloe reflected on the parable of the prodigal son from Luke’s gospel.
