May Brother Trevor experience the fullness of God's word and the eternal life which is its promise. Brother Trevor shared his love for the Missions in the Archdiocese of Adelaide with enthusiam and encouraged many of us to foster a missionary spirit in our lives. Well done good and faithful servant.

Trevor was one of the Brothers on the teaching staff at ERC, Bundoora in the mid '60s, the 'juniorate' for those of us of school age across four southern states of Australia wanting to take steps in exploring religious life. More simply perhaps, it was exploring the awareness of wanting 'to be a Brother'. They were different times. Trevor's enthusiasm for teaching stood out. As well as formal classes for RE, which for Trevor were Scripture-based, he also introduced us to taking everyday life-experiences and other people's life-stories as the starting point for weekday morning meditation, which was more often than not something that was puzzling for 15 - 16 year old boys at that time of the day. His willingness to give time and effort in preparing material that could be helpful stood out for me. And then there were the introductory French classes he introduced for some of us after the evening meal. Even though I have not met him since, Trevor's passion and commitment to teaching stood out for me, as well as his sense of enjoyment for the challenges that good teaching brings, something not common at the time. Thank you for what you brought to our worlds, broadening our awareness of the world, of God, and of our place in it.
