Peter prospers spiritually

REVEREND Canon Dr Peter Catt won the hearts of his congregation while serving in Grafton and has managed to have a similar impact in Brisbane.

After leaving Grafton at the end of 2007, Father Catt moved to the Queensland capital.

He took up the challenging position of sub-dean of St John’s Cathedral in Ann Street.

Father Catt was recently appointed as the next Dean of Brisbane and he gladly took up the post on November 1.

St John’s Cathedral is one of the largest places of worship in the city of Brisbane.

Father Catt moved into the oldest building in the precinct.

The St John’s Cathedral Deanery was built in 1853.

It was used as the residence of the first Governor of Queensland until the first Government House was built.

Father Catt served in Grafton for more than a decade.

He raised three children here and was involved in many facets of the community.

For years Father Catt was a regular contributor to The Daily Examiner’s Clarence Life section, writing a column entitled Spiritual Matters.
