first met Ted Kennedy nearly fifteen years ago when
I first began attending St
Church. Like many other disillusioned Catholics I searched
for a Church that would challenge my faith life and
provide a supportive and inspiring community. I have
certainly not been disappointed.
the years I have been challenged and inspired by Ted's
wonderful homilies, extraordinarily moved by his commitment
and devotion to the poor and in his own gentle way I
have felt his personal care and support for myself and
1994 my partner Damian and I were very privileged to
have Ted celebrate our wedding and attend our party.
As we prepared the Mass, Ted empowered us to direct
it in our own way and offered kind support when needed.
the times that we have experienced much worry over our
son Liam's health, Ted has always shown deep felt concern
and support. This has been very consoling for me and
my family and we are very grateful.
a privilege it has been to be part of a community led
by a man who has been so treasured, loved and respected.
all my love,
