Jan Keogh

St James the Apostle Parish, Hoppers Crossing North, grieves the loss of a woman of faith, courage, respect and loyalty.

Jan moved into the St James parish community as the founding principal of St Francis of Assisi primary school in Tarneit, our second primary school. She instantly immersed herself in the life of our community. We will always remember for her years of dedicated service to Catholic education, selfless sense of service, love of parents and their children, deep faith and generous care of the staff at St Francis of Assisi, and the enormous contribution she has made to St James parish and to the culture of strength and faith to the community. She has left a legacy of care, gentleness, and compassion which will continue to touch us all for many years to come. To Jan’s family and Maureen, our deepest sympathy and prayers at this time. Farewell Jan, you will be dearly missed by all.

You can view a Memorial Service to Jan from St Francis Primary from last Friday 21 Aug, on the parish website (stjamesapostlehcn.com.au).

You can also view the webcast of Jan’s Funeral on Tues 25 Aug at 10:00am by clicking HERE  (or at this address if the link does not work: http://tobin.5stream.com/webcast/57472). We recommend using Google Chrome or the most updated version of your browser to view this.

Dear Fr Jude and Parish,

I would like to thank you for the prayers, good wishes and presentations at our mass of thanksgiving on 7th July. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity I was given 7 years ago to become the foundation Principal of St Francis of Assisi (SFA) Primary School, Tarneit. My experience has been one of constant support and encouragement by the leadership, staff and parishioners of St James the Apostle parish. Along with the staff and families of SFA, we have been able to create a strong, vibrant educational community at Tarneit within the life of this parish.  As I retire from my leadership position, I pray that the community continues to grow and develop in the spirit of St Francis and the Paulist Missionaries. I look forward to my continued relationship with the parish.

Pace et bene, Jan Keogh

The Paulist Missionaries are truly honoured and grateful for the naming of the new Centre after their founder Joseph De Piro.

We ask that you keep Jan and the school community of St Francis in your prayers.

Ms Jan Keogh has announced her decision to resign her position as Principal of St Francis of Assisi Primary School as from the end of term 2 2018. With a twelve month lead in to this change of leadership we have the opportunity to appoint a new Principal and manage a smooth transition to the school’s next stage of development.

Jan is most grateful for the support and encouragement she has received from the parish community over her six years as foundation Principal of St Francis and is looking forward to continuing the work of leading this school community over the coming year.

The process for the appointment of the new Principal begins immediately. A panel has been formed. The role of the panel is to assist the Parish Priest in establishing selection criteria and discerning the most appropriate candidate for selection. Our initial timeline is to appoint by early October. Please keep in your prayers Jan and those involved in the process – that they may be guided by the Spirit.
