Fr Ted Cooper Passing

Rev. Fr Edward (Ted) Cooper S.D.B. passed to his eternal reward on Monday 9 September at John Paul Village in Engadine New South Wales.

Fr Cooper was Rector-Principal here at Salesian College from 1964 to 1969 and again from 1974 to 1976. There will be many in the College Community who remember Fr Cooper as a very active teacher and Administrator in those years as the College became established. It was during his time at the College that quite a number of young men were challenged by him to consider joining the Salesians. These include Fr Greg Chambers, now the Provincial of the Salesians in Australia and the Pacific, Fr Peter Monaghan a current Staff Member here at the College and many others.

The Funeral Arrangements for Fr Cooper are 2:00pm Salesian College Sunbury, Wednesday 18 September.

Fr John Papworth
SBD Rector
