Geoff Officer is a lover of history. To him, history is a great teacher of self. In pondering his own story, it is the witness of his father’s capacity for leaning into mystery and his mother’s reflective practical faith that formed the earliest foundations for Geoff’s own openness to mystery, wonder and awe. These seeds were further nurtured by his Marist schooling, accompanied by exposure to management roles across the globe.
All this life and faith experience is what Geoff brings into his leadership as Chief of Operations & Finance in the Diocese of Parramatta – a reflective earthy spirituality which always aspires to connect with the realities of the world in which God calls the Church to serve with faith, joy and love.
