SECOND TERM: Fr Tom Cassidy has been relected as prior
The Dominican Friars of the Province of Assumption have re-elected Fr Tom Cassidy as prior provincial for a second four-year term.
He was re-elected at the province’s 13th elective chapter at the John XXIII College, Canberra, and confirmed in the office by the Most Rev Carlos Aspiroz Costa, Master of the Order of Preachers.
The province’s works cover Australia, New Zealand, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
Fr Tom was born in 1941 in Camberwell, Victoria, and educated by the Jesuits at St Patrick’s, East Melbourne, before he entered the Dominican Order.
He completed theological studies at the Dominican House of Studies at Blackfriars, Canberra, and was ordained a priest in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne in 1966.
