Vale – Lui Mori

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of our very own Lui Mori. His cheeky smile, the twinkle in his eyes and his gentle manner will be missed by us all. Lui mentored many of our officials, imparting his knowledge and guiding us forward. Our lives are all the better for knowing him.

When funeral arrangements are known, we will email them out.  Chaplain Dave Vaughan is available for a chat if you feel the need to speak to someone.  He can be contacted on 0418 803 239 or email

Our thoughts and prayers go out to David Mori and his family.

RIP Lui. xx
