Country Club Chaplain
In 2010 two members of the Jeparit Rainbow Football Club meet with traumatic death when they were electrocuted when installing a windmill.
Not only did family members have to face this devastating ordeal but also the football club who lost their President and long serving member.
The community expressed their deep gratitude to the VCFL for their Chaplain helping them deal with the deep and lasting emotional trauma of the loss. Rather than retreating and isolating themselves many reflected on how the Chaplain helped them better heal together as a community by providing timely and genuine emotional support.
Club officials were also grateful having someone who understood how to care for people in tough times.
