Rare honour to Terry for service to schools
RICHLY DESERVED: Terry Keogh and wife Helen after the investiture
Pope John Paul II has rewarded a lifetime of service to the Catholic Church and its schools in the Sydney metropolitan area by bestowing a rare honour on Terry Keogh of the Catholic Education Office, Sydney.
The Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell, has invested Terry with the Papal honour of Knight of the Order of St Gregory the Great.
He presented him with the insignia and diploma in a ceremony held at Cathedral House on the morning of the feast of Our Lady Help of Christians.
Terry, who is director of financial services, is currently acting executive director of schools in the archdiocese while Br Kelvin Canavan is overseas.
He began teaching 1964, and has since taught at St Mary’s, Toowoomba; Christian Brothers, Gympie; St Paul’s, Manly; De La Salle College, Revesby Heights; Parramatta Marist and St Dominic’s College, Penrith.
