It is with great sadness that we advise the passing of Father Brian Ashworth.
Father Brian played a major role in the formation of ac.care and I refer to him as the “Founding Father” of ac.care. Without his foresight and passion for social justice ac.care would not exist today.
It was Brian who opened the church hall to the community when the need was identified for a teenage foster care service in Mount Gambier. It was Brian who initiated the support from Christ Church Parish Council to submit a proposal to the then Deptartment of Community Welfare requesting funds for a teenage foster care program. Twenty-eight thousand dollars was provided. Brian then facilitated the local Anglican Church to be the auspicing body. When the fledgling organisation needed people to sit on the Board it was Brian who tapped people on the shoulder.
Brian was always passionate about ac.care and the work we do in our communities. He was also very dedicated to the well being our staff, regardless of faith or no faith, and was very proud to be the ac.care Chaplain for the Mt Gambier offices. He always made time to offer advice or support.
Father Brian was a very determined man who cared greatly for his parish and community, and all people within it. Brian will be sadly missed and our thoughts and prayers go to Anne, David, Rachel, Frances and Jonathon and their families.
Brian’s funeral will be this Friday 27th June, 2pm at Christ Church, Bay Road, Mount Gambier.
