One of the features of this site is to note the deaths of men who have shared our MSC lives for many years in the past. Ted Lambert was such a man. A 'late vocation', he made his novitiate in 1951. He was ordained in 1958.  For some years he was Provincial Bursar and had a reputation, humorously fostered, of having theories on most things. He was at Santa Teresa, the aboriginal town outside Alice Springs in the first half of the 1980s. He has died at the age of 92.


Jim Littleton writes:  

       “I received word this afternoon that Ted Lambert died this afternoon about 3.00 pm.    He had a serious fall recently and his condition deteriorated rapidly.   He was also suffering from dementia.   He was living in a retirement village in Seaforth, about 30 minutes south of Adelaide.   His wife, Rosemary, a former religious, survives him.   It would be good if you let the Province know, as he would be well known to the older ones among us.”  


May Ted rest in peace
