will join Bishop Terry Brady as the three Auxiliary Bishops serving the Archdiocese
of Sydney.
The Most Reverend Anthony Fisher OP, Archbishop of Sydney, was the Principal
Consecrator and Celebrant. The Most Reverend Mark Coleridge, Archbishop of Brisbane,
and the Most Reverend Stephen Lee Bun-sang, Bishop of Macau, were the Principal
Co-Consecrators. 
In his words of welcome, Archbishop Fisher extended a special welcome to Bishop

He also welcomed civic and religious leaders and representatives from sister
churches.
During the presentation of the bishops-elect, the Apostolic Nuncio to Australia,
Archbishop Adolfo Tito Yllana, recited the Papal Bull.
