Fr Con Jordan MSC
Fr. Con (Cornelius) Jordan of Australia, the dean of the Congregation, will celebrate three important anniversaries this year:
- On February 26, he will celebrate the 80th anniversary of his first profession;
- On May 29, he will be 100 years old;
- On November 30, he will celebrate the 75th anniversary of his ordination.
Fr Jordan spent many years in the education ministry in Australia, especially at Downlands College, Toowoomba. He also was a significant teacher for MSCs preparing to movie into education.
In more recent years he worked in MSC Missions support.
Fr. Jordan will be the second MSC in history, after Bro. John Pye of Australia, to reach the age of 100. We believe that he will be the first to celebrate 80 years of vows and 75 of priesthood. He resides at St Joseph's attached to our community in Kensington (P.O. Box 13, Kensington NSW 1465).
