Peter Kearney, Australian Church music composer and musician, supporter of St Vincents Aboriginal Catholic community at Redfern.

Peter Kearney's contemporary Australian Church music is the outcome of a long relationship with the Australian Aboriginal Catholic community. After spending time in Ireland in 2007-2008, Peter is now based at Mittagong, New South Wales. He is touring throughout Australia, and his next Sydney concert, "Good Morning, Good People" will be at the Holy Family Parish Hall, 214 Maroubra Road, Maroubra, on Sunday 11 November 2012 at 2.00 pm. Entry by donation.

After many tribulations, St Vincents Catholic community in Redfern is finally reaping the well-earned fruits of its dedication to Christian social justice. Sponsored by the Jesuit Order, the new Aboriginal Jarjums School, with memorial statues and plaques to the work of Mum Shirl and Father Ted, and with Gamilaroi woman Beatrice Sheen as headmistress, is now a work in progress. The Jarjums College building in Redfern is the old St Vincents Presbytery.
