I am a newcomer to the parish as from January 2002 (though in the past I had visited the parish on a number of occasions). I have experienced the following as Father Ted Kennedy's legacy to the parish of Redfern and beyond:

A community of people who know each other and care for each other.

An open, welcoming community that is inclusive - all can find a home here.

A community concerned about issues which affect people locally, nationally, internationally; concern is expressed both in prayer and action.

A community which takes responsibility for the parish and has a (right) sense of ownership of it.

I believe that all this is the result of Ted's communicating the gospel in his life and in his homilies on Sundays over many years. In other words the Gospel is his real legacy.
