John Golja

Member – Parish Pastoral Council 2015

I was raised in Newborough in Gippsland, where I also studied at Monash Gippsland before shifting to Blackburn in 1997 to study at Swinburne University. I married Deonetta in 1996, and have 2 children who go to St Patrick’s School. We have been in Pakenham since early 2010.
I have been with the Parish Council since late 2010, and with my science, technology and educational background, I try to share my skills within the Church and School where the Parish Community would benefit. I enjoy the relaxed and warm, welcoming feeling that I get from the Parish community. It is a great place to raise a family where a caring and nurturing environment helps to instil the spiritual values of our faith.
