I’ve been married to Denis for over 40 years and we have three wonderful children and five adorable grandchildren.
We both come from large families, have quite a gathering of siblings and in laws, as well as nieces and nephews and now their children. We have loved our many celebrations at all stages of life.
I have spent most of my working life in the Catholic Church, firstly as a primary teacher and for the past thirty years as a senior pastoral associate in a variety of parishes in pastoral care, helping to build community life, leading the community in their liturgical celebrations and assisting families with baptisms, weddings and funerals. I have now retired and love my new life as a civil celebrant. Denis and I continue community involvement and charity work, especially at the Sacred Heart Mission in St Kilda.
