Peter O'Meara (1973) receives Papal Knighthood

Congratulations to Peter O'Meara (1973), who received a Papal Order of Knighthood from the Vatican -The Knight Commander's Cross of the Order of St Gregory the Great, from Pope Francis through Sydney's Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP. This is the fourth highest award that is presented by the Vatican.

Peter's contribution to the church has obviously been recognised by Pope Francis. Many of you would know Peter, or "Beak" as he was fondly known, through his involvement with Souths Rugby, the QRU and his role in establishing the Western Force Rugby as their inaugural CEO.

Peter and his family would also welcome any prayers as he is fighting a debilitating and aggressive form of Motor Neurone Disease.
