The Reverend Heather Dearden was welcomed as Priest-in-Charge in September 2019. Both Heather and her husband, George, originally came from Roma and their respective families are still on properties in the surrounding district. Prior to ordination, Heather worked in a school Library for many years combining a love of books and young people.
Heather believes that our early years form us, and from her childhood, she has inherited a deep love of the bush, the country way of life and our Australian landscape. When she entered ministry, it was with a passion for the love of God and the needs of our rural communities. She is deeply grateful to be given this opportunity to serve our Lord in the Roma Anglican Parish.
