It is with heavy hearts that we farewell Deacon Boniface Perdjert, who went to God on Monday - March 18 2019 - following an extended stay in hospital.

 

Deacon Boniface, who was 82 blazed a trail for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholics to follow as he not only walked between two worlds – Catholic and Traditional – he brought them together.
