It is with sadness that the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney advises the community of the death of Father Peter Neville.
Father Neville entered Eternal Life on Sunday, 28 January following a road accident. He was aged 80.
Ordained on 21 July 1962, Father Neville’s first appointment as Assistant Priest was at East Granville, then Camperdown, Balgowlah, Ashbury, Lane Cove, Enfield, Dulwich Hill and Pymble.
His first appointment as Parish Priest was to Bossley Park in 1980 and he served in that role at Georges Hall from 1995 until his retirement to lesser duties in 2007. He was Executive Secretary of the Pastoral Studies Committee for a time and Dean of the Auburn-Bankstown Deanery for six years.
We extend our prayers and our deep sympathy to members of Father Neville’s family. We also offer our prayers to the young man involved in the incident, and his family, at this difficult time.
Funeral details will be advised when they are available.
May the soul of Father Peter Neville enjoy the resurrection promised by Christ.
