A familiar figure in the Brighton area
over the Christmas holidays was Moses
Tamale, a young Ugandan man studying
at the Goodshepherd Seminary in
Sydney for the Archdiocese of Kampala-
Invited to South Australia by parish
priest Mgr Ian Dempsey and Mgr Rob
Egar, Moses was warmly welcomed into
the Brighton Catholic community and
also mixed well with young people at
the local Foodland supermarket which
provided him with part-time work.
Moses (pictured) began his seminary
formation in 2006 at St Mbaaga’s Major
Seminary Ggaba (named after Uganda
martyr Mbaaga Tuzinde). After six and
half years of study and pastoral work he
was asked to come to Sydney for the
remainder of his formation.
Three years later, Moses says his
seminary formation have been “a great
time for discernment, and above all an
opportune time to experience and also
be convinced of God’s love for me”.
“It has generally been a time for
journeying with God more closely,” he
“It has been an opportunity to face
myself without wearing any masks, a
time of seeing myself as God really sees
“It has been a humbling time, yet it
has been a time of experiencing God’s
Moses said his time in Adelaide had
been a wonderful experience and he
was “delighted” to serve at Mass on
weekends as well as meet and chat with
parishioners who made him feel at home
during his stay.
“The parishioners of Brighton have given
me a great impression about Adelaide,”
“They invited me for dinners and sports
(tennis)...Mgr Ian and Mgr Egar have
been amazing with their hospitality, while
the Men’s Shed were quite inspiring with
their fraternity and communion. I have
fond memories of my time with them.”
Moses also had an opportunity to have
a chat with Adelaide Vicar General Fr
Philip Marshall and explored some
places outside of Brighton thanks to
the generosity of Fr Peter Sheedy.
The Sisters of Mercy were another
community that looked after him well.
Moses said as a child he was intrigued
by the role of the priest in the Mass but
never thought of becoming one until
2004 when he saw a priest on television.
“He was working among people who
had been internally displaced due to war
in the northern part of Uganda,” said
“I felt there was something extraordinary
about this priest and I never stopped
thinking about how dedicated and
selfless he was.
“I wondered what drew him to that kind
of work. His inspiration awakened my
childhood desire (which I could not
articulate as a child) to be a priest.”
Moses said he was grateful to his
bishop, family and everyone who was
journeying with him for their support.
“I also ask you all for your prayers to
always have the courage to say ‘yes’ to
the Lord,” he said.
WA bishop cleared
Bishop Max Davis, Bishop of the Catholic
Diocese of the Australian Defence Force, has
been found not guilty of charges relating to
claims of historical incidents which were dealt
with by the District Court of Western Australia
last month. The diocese said it strongly
encouraged any victim of abuse by clergy or staff
within the Catholic Church, or any other agency
or person, to report the matter to the police and
to seek assistance through the dedicated legal
and support services.
Ready to help
Adelaide Vicar General Fr Philip Marshall has
welcomed the SA Premier’s offer of support
for asylum seeker families facing deportation
to Nauru.“We wholeheartedly support Mr
Weatherill’s letter to Prime Minister Turnbull
raising concerns for the welfare of children and
their parents if they are returned to Nauru,” Fr
Marshall said. “Through our schools, parishes,
health and welfare agencies, we are well-placed
to support these people in many different ways.”
Carmelite Brother Sean Keefe was awarded
an OAM in the Australia Day Honours for his
involvement with the people of Timor-Leste
and his services to the City of Manningham in
Victoria. Originally from Kentucky in the United
States, Br Sean came to Australia in 2001 to be
chaplain at Whitefriars College, Donvale.
