Br Charles Barry
Br Charles Barry 60 Years

Congratulations to our Brother Charles Barry, who celebrated his Diamond Jubilee, (60 years), as a Patrician Brother!

In August 1955, Brother Charles joined the Patrician Brothers in Ireland.  At the tender age of 21, he was asked to leave his home and family to come to Australia to teach at Patrician Brothers Fairfield, where he was appointed Principal after 5 years. 

In 1968, Brother Charles joined a group of 21 volunteers who established the Patrician story in Papua New Guinea, clearing the land, building schools and educating the grateful students and building communities.

As we celebrated with Brother Charles on Friday 14 August with Brothers, ex staff and students, current staff and students and members of the Delany community, there were some amazing stories shared.  It was wonderful to have Mass led by Bishop Terry Brady, who also shared some of his experiences with Brother Charles.  Brother Phil Mulhall took us back decade by decade in his recount of a Patrician life, according to Brother Charles. 

We have been blessed to have Brother Charles with us at Delany College for 20 years now, as a teacher, and now Counsellor.  He is a man of many talents and the students and staff appreciate his wisdom, caring and humble lead.
