Divine World Missionary Fr Tim Norton will become Brisbane’s new Auxiliary Bishop. Originally from suburban Ryde in Sydney, Fr Norton was trained as a physiotherapist and worked with young street people in Darlinghurst who were experiencing homelessness, addiction and mental health issues. After six years of carrying out key formation roles in Melbourne and Sydney, nine years as the Divine Word Missionaries’ Australian provincial, and seven years in a mountain retreat just outside of Rome running the society’s renewal programs for priests and brothers, Fr Norton will see a new mission as Brisbane’s Auxiliary Bishop.
