Archdiocesan employees recognised for years of service
By Josh Low
Thirty-three employees of the Archdiocese of Hobart were honoured last month at the Archdiocesan Centre in New Town as the annual Employee Service Recognition Awards were presented on Wednesday 21 September.
Archbishop Julian presented awards to employees who have worked in the Archdiocese for five, 10, 15 and 20 continuous years.
One of the two recipients celebrating 20 years of service, Cherie O’Meara has worked for the Archdiocese in various roles.
Service to the Church and community has been at the heart of her work over the past 20 years, of which 15 have been dedicated to graphic design in the Archdiocese’s Media and Communications unit.
“I deeply appreciate the opportunity to serve the Tasmanian Catholic community using my artistic gifts and am very thankful for the rewarding experience over the last 20 years.
“It is lovely to have been recognised and appreciated for a role that goes largely unnoticed,” she said.
“Whether it is a poster, magazine, newspaper, or a website for the Archdiocese and CatholicCare, it has always been an incredible and rewarding experience.
“I have appreciated being able to support and work with some amazing and talented people who have made a positive difference to the mission of the Church and have been an important part in my life’s journey,” she said.
Sharon Gardiner, who works as a Child Care Educator for CatholicCare, also received an award for 20 years of service but was unable to attend the ceremony.
