Diocesan husband and wife to represent Australia at the World Meeting of Families

June 12, 2022

Congratulations and prayers for our diocesan director of the Office of Renewal and Evangelisation, Jude Hennessy, and his wife and local diocesan Catholic school teacher, Kerrie Hennessy, as they prepare for their trip to Rome.

Both have been members of the Australian Catholic Life, Marriage and Family Council for the last three years and have now been selected by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference to attend the upcoming World Meeting of Families in Rome on behalf of the Australian Catholic Church on 22 June.

As the both told Debbie Cramsie at the Catholic Weekly:

“It is a real honour to be asked, humbling and a little bit daunting,” Mr Hennessy said.

“In saying that, we are passionate about thriving marriages and family life and are eager to hear the experience of families from around the world who are living out their faith.”

Mr and Mrs Hennessy celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary earlier this year, have two adult daughters and a grandchild on the way.

Couldn’t be a better couple in the world to fly the Aussie flag for us!
