It is with great sadness that we share with you that Fr James Duck, a much loved member of the presbyterate of our Diocese of Broken Bay, passed away on Friday, 10 September at his home in North Ryde, aged 87.

Fr Jim was a remarkable presence in our Diocese, participating with great generosity in the life of the presbyterate right through to his death and maintaining an active ministry throughout his retirement supporting our priests by his gracious availability for supply.

We give God thanks for Fr James Duck’s long and fruitful ministry as a priest, and now commend him to Almighty God. “Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.”
