Tablelands reconfiguration

Following the retirment on 30 June 2017 of Rev Dr Greg Moses as Parish Priest of Herberton and Atherton, the four parishes of the Atherton Tablelands (Herberton, Atherton, Ravenshoe and Malanda) were placed under the care of one Parish Priest, who is to be headquartered in Atherton when the presbytery as been suitably renovated. Fr Joby Jose has been appointed associate priest and is also to be based in Atherton.

The presbytery in Atherton is not yet ready for this new configuration; until it is ready Fr Barry will continue to reside in Malanda (which he will maintain as his academic base), and Fr Joby will reside in Yungaburra.
