Terry was an active parishioner of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel in Haymarket, Sydney, and so when he became interested in religious life he consulted one of the brothers in the Blessed Sacrament Community there.

The Northern Territories’ longest serving missionary and the world-wide MSC Society’s senior member, died in Darwin on Friday 29th May, aged 102. Bishop Eugene Hurley, in his tribute to Brother John, spoke of him as an “icon of the Territory” who had won the love and respect of the Aboriginal people for his work on the Tiwi Islands, Port Keats (Wadeye) and Daly River (Nauiyu). “He was a great religious brother who committed his life to serving other people”.
John was especially revered for introducing the game of Australian Rules to the Tiwi people, where he is known as the “Father of Football”. After his death a fine tribute appeared in the Melbourne daily newspaper, “The Age”, praising his significant contribution to the promotion of Australian Rules, and not only in the Northern Territory, for many Aboriginal players from NT went on to successful careers in some of the major teams in the AFL.
