There’s a lot more to Rev Geoff McIlroy than a life of prayer and preaching. Sure, as the parish priest at St Macartan’s in Mornington, Fr Geoff spends a lot of his time doing God’s work, but when he does get some spare time, he often swaps his priestly vestments for a biker jacket and heads for the wide, open roads of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula on his Harley Davidson Softail Heritage Classic motorbike.

Come along and hear the unlikely story of the bikie priest and how he came to faith through stubbornness and anger at God.

6.30pm for dinner (available for purchase)
