Peter and Rosie Condon
Rosie and Peter were married in Brisbane in 1982 after meeting in their workplace and have been blessed with 3 children (Amanda, Michelle and James) who are all married and living in Brisbane. They have 5 grandchildren, two grandsons born in 2015 and two granddaughters and a grandson born in 2017.
Rosie was born in Brisbane and is the eldest of 4 children. Rosie’s career has spanned roles in corporate admin, pharmaceutical warehousing, 10 years as a stay at home mum and in finance. She recently retired after 19 years working in the parish office for Jubilee parish. Rosie has also contributed 5 years as secretary of the past pupils committee and 8 years on the foundation board of Mount St Michaels girls school. She is currently looking forward to spending time with her grandchildren and continuing her involvement in family, church and community.
Peter was born in NSW and is the eldest of 6 children. He moved to Brisbane at the start of his high school years after growing up in Canberra and Dubbo. Peter has tertiary qualifications in engineering and computer science. He spent 10 years working as a civil engineer before changing his career direction towards information technology. He is currently a software engineer and partner in a private software development company.
Rosie and Peter were involved in a Brisbane wide Catholic youth ministry for a number of years before and after they were married. This experience has been a foundation of their belief in the power of Christ’s message for those who follow him and, through them, on the whole world.
In 1985 Rosie and Peter joined the Darra Jindalee Catholic parish in Brisbane and have remained active members of the parish apart from a five-year period spent working in Sydney while their children were in primary school. Their involvement in the parish has included assisting with programs such as Alpha and RCIA and many years involvement in the youth ministry including as the adult support team accompanying 40 young people to World Youth Day in Sydney in 2008.
They look forward to helping to ensure that Shepherd’s Keep can continue to bring hope and joy and to provide a better life for these little children of God.
