I am Fr. Novelito Lim but many people call me "Novie" to make it short and easy to remember. I, originally, came from Cebu City, Philippines but currently working for the Diocese of Sandhurst, Bendigo, Australia. 

After a few years of study in the Philippines particularly at Saint John XXIII Seminary (secondary school) and San Carlos Seminary College for a Philosophy degree, I then transferred to Corpus Christi College in Melbourne to continue my Bachelor in Theology and Master in Theological Studies.

I was ordained last 23rd of October, 2015, at the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, in Cebu, Philippines. I was serving in the Catholic Parishes of Wangaratta as an assistant priest since the 22nd of November 2015 until the 16th of May 2018.
