Former Deniliquin parish priest Fr Jim Victory has retired, leaving Hay for Albury at the weekend.
Fr Victory had a lengthy association with Deniliquin from 1992 to 2004, and also had two short stints in Barham before ending up in Hay five years ago.
As the only resident minister in Hay for much of that time, he was often called upon to also help people from other denominations.
‘‘It has been a privilege helping them,’’ he said.
‘‘I got on well with the other churches.’’
Fr Jim was ordained at Broken Hill, his home town, in 1965 and over the past 47 years served in 11 parishes.
Fr Jim’s new home is a unit in a Lutheran Retirement Village and he will continue to help out where a priest is needed.
He is temporarily replaced at Hay by Fr Mark Whybrow from Wagga Diocese until a permanent replacement is found.
