Fr Ephraem Chifley RIP

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr Ephraem (John) Chifley, formerly of the Dominicans, who died unexpectedly on Friday, aged 53.

I remember fondly Fr Chifley from his time as chaplain at ANU (he confirmed me in a Dominican Rite Mass), and I'm sure he helped many others as well, so please do keep him especially in your prayers.

Only just found out about fr Ephraem Chifley. i knew him from the parish of St Laurence North Adelaide where he celebrated the TLM according to the Dominican rite. My first experience of the Latin mass was his back in 2001. The best homilies i have ever heard was his, great preacher and a very erudite man. I will miss him. RIP. Father.
