Our Parish Priest

Father Lachlan Coll was born in Ayrshire Scotland in 1940.  After completing his primary school, he migrated with his family to Australia in 1950 and settled in Tasmania.  He completed his secondary schoolings with the Christian Brothers at St Virgil’s College in Hobart.  On leaving school he undertook the study of accountancy.  In 1963 he moved to Canberra with the Commonwealth Audit Office.  He was married at St. Christopher’s Cathedral in 1964 and spent the next three years in Papua New Guinea.  He has a son and two daughters and four grandchildren.  His wife died in 1984.

Father Lachlan entered St. Paul’s National Seminary for late vocations to the priesthood in 1988.  He was ordained to the priesthood in August 1992 at Holy Family Parish, Gowrie.  He has served in a number of city and country parishes within the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn since ordination.  In August 2008 Father Lachlan took up his present appointment as Parish Priest of St Anthony of Padua, Wanniassa.
