Parish Priest


Fr Joe Caddy serves as the Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Melbourne, and since May 2021, has adopted the precious Parish of St Carthages in Parkville as Parish Priest since Fr Michael retired after 34 years of service here. Whilst Fr Joe’s role as Vicar General takes up much of his time, he continues to shepherd the parish with a genuine concern for the well-being of all parishioners and a love for the Church. The parish community of St Carthages are truly thankful to have Fr Joe as their Parish Priest.
