Former NSW premier Keneally back on parish duties roster

Kristina Keneally

---

Former NSW premier Kristina Keneally became emotional while speaking to members of her church in Sydney's east on Sunday, while thanking them for support during her election campaign, said a report from The Sunday Telegraph on news.com.au.

Addressing 150 members of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Kensington, Mrs Keneally chocked back tears, saying she hoped to become more involved with the church now she was a backbencher, and joked that the liturgical roster would now take precedence over politics.

 

 

Speaking to the media outside, a more composed Mrs Keneally refused to be drawn into speculation about the next NSW Opposition Leader.

She said it was "wonderful" to be back at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Kensington, which has been her family's place of worship for 10 years.

"Today we had a homily about life-giving water, and this is a parish that has given the people of Australia a couple of ministers of the crown, both state and federal, a deputy prime minister and now a premier," she told reporters.

"There must be something in the water at this parish."

Ms Keneally said she would be returning to work in her seat of Heffron and would also resume her duties at her church.

"I just found out that I am back on my spot on the liturgical roster ... they all think I have a bit more time ... I am now responsible for the children's liturgy at Easter," she said.

On Saturday, Ms Keneally took responsibility for the result as she announced she would not re-contest the leadership after NSW voters delivered the 16-year-old Labor government the almighty hammering it feared.  (Reported by CathNews.)
