In anticipation of the revised governance of the College which resulted in the St Paul’s College Act 2018, a Chaplain was appointed to lead the spiritual life of the College as well as broadening the scope for pastoral care of students and staff. As a result, the Rev’d Antony Weiss was appointed as the resident Chaplain to St Paul’s College from 2018.
Antony has a Bachelor of Divinity from Moore Theological College and was made Deacon and ordained Priest in the Diocese of Sydney. In addition to his full-time licensed ministry at St Paul’s College, Antony also holds the Archbishop of Sydney’s licence as an Honorary Assistant Priest at Christ Church St Laurence at Railway Square.
Prior to commencing his theological studies at Moore College, Antony was a long-serving Master at Shore with over two decades as a boarding housemaster, latterly as Senior Boarding Housemaster. Antony was also formerly Head of Languages at Shore, teaching predominantly French and Latin. He coached and co-ordinated Shore’s junior rowing programme for twenty seasons.
Outside of ministry and teaching, Antony has a passion for extensive travels in the Outback in his Toyota LandCruiser to some of the remotest parts of the Australian continent including journeys with current Paulines during semester breaks.
Antony is available to all members of the College community for pastoral care matters or a general catch up. He may be contacted at any time via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
