A Major Change at Salesian College in Chadstone

Salesian College Chadstone

Following is a message from Fr. Chris Ford SDB, Principal of Salesian College Chadstone, regarding his new appointment in Samoa in 2012 and the future of the College.

Salesian College ChadstoneA copy of a letter from the Salesian Provincial, Fr Frank Moloney SDB, to the Salesian College Community was distributed to all students to take home to their parents earlier in the week.

In that letter Fr Moloney announces that I have accepted an appointment to the Salesian mission in Samoa commencing January 2012. Consequently, I will be completing my term of office as Principal of Salesian College at the conclusion of 2011.

The position of Principal of Salesian College will be advertised nationally this weekend in ‘The Age’ and ‘The Australian’ newspapers as well as on diocesan websites. Fr Moloney has appointed Fr Greg Chambers as the Chair of the Selection Panel and it is anticipated that an announcement about the new Principal for 2012 will be made early in Term 4.

I will leave filled with hope that God, who is the joy of my life, will continue to guide me as I embark on a new phase of life as a person, a Salesian and a priest.

While Fr Moloney has made his announcement and plans are underway to appoint my replacement, there is still much work to be done this year. We have numerous projects that must be brought to completion before the end of the year, and other initiatives that must be launched. Let us join together to ensure that we all make the most of the opportunities available to us this year.

Fr Chris Ford SDB—Principal
