In Memory of Cathy Bedford

17 May, 2023

21 February 1953 – 28 April 2023

St Patrick’s Emerald were deeply shocked and saddened and the sudden passing of Mrs. Cathy Bedford.

Cathy was a wonderful, inspiring role model and a dedicated and selfless stalwart of the church. Cathy’s requiem mass was held on the 5th of May, presided by Fathers Truc and Francois, with many messages of condolences received from past priests, of whom Cathy was a great supporter.

Our heartfelt condolences to Cathy’s husband Mark, and children, Damian, Scott, Timothy and Andrew and extended family.

Fr Raj summed up the community feeling,

“Well done, good and faithful servant! You were faithful over a few things; I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your Master!”
