From Head of Co-curriculum, Pat Brennan
A touching moment occurred during the CAS Rugby season after the premiership winning First XV team ran onto the field to start their final match against Barker College when the 1st XV surprised Class of 1988 member, Luke Meads, who was fighting his own battle with cancer. The 1st XV players had signed a ball which was presented to Luke by Captain, Lachlan Drew-Morris. The reaction to this gesture from the large number of old boys who had gathered as part of ‘Back to Queens Park Day’ was generous applause.
Unfortunately Luke recently lost his battle with cancer.
The College sends its prayers to Luke’s family and friends at this difficult time.
God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.
In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.
Friends of Luke are invited to celebrate his life on Tuesday 18 October from 4.00pm at Watson’s Bay Hotel. Luke’s ashes will be scattered in the waters of Watson’s Bay at sunset.
