  • TOOHEY (Fr Peter):

    We have lost a great champion. He fought so fiercely for the disposed and advocated for the right of everyone to be treated fairly and justly. I have known him for a very long time and he has always been the humble servant of God who walked among men and women and was always in our midst. He walked the humble walk. He always spoke the truth and was a generous loving man of God.

    I will miss you.

    The L'Arche Perth community mourns the passing of Peter Toohey, whose sudden death shocked us all. He will be fondly remembered for his gentle presence which belied his fierce advocacy for all those marginalised in our society. A man whose life truly made a difference.

    Rest In Peace Fr. Peter. A wonderful holy man. He was an inspiration to many and will be dearly missed. But most of all he was my dear friend and always had time to sit and listen. You have left without saying good bye but I’m sure the Lord needed you and called you unexpectedly. God bless Fr. Peter and until we meet again May the Lord hold you in the palm of his hand. Our sympathies to all your family and your Columban Family. Love Bridget. X

    Fr Peter was for me the embodiment of the beatitudes; meek, humble and a peacemaker with a hunger and thirst for justice. will miss you dearly.

    It was a joy and privilege knowing

    Fr. Peter. He was a kindly soul and his zest and energy even after retiring was evident in many community events which he unfailingly attended. God rest his soul. My sympathies extend to his family and the Colomban community.

    Dear Father Peter, such a beautiful soul, and a true Christian, who spent his Christmas comforting our dear mother as she was dying. We are so grateful to have known you, even for such a brief moment. Our condolences and love to his family, friends and fellow pilgrims. There's a party going on in heaven tonight I'm sure.

    Go in peace.

    Passed away suddenly at home. Very much loved by his Confrères from the Missionary Society of St Columba. His mission work in Korea, Chile and Australia and his chaplaincies have left an indelible presence in the lives of everyone he touched. He will be sadly missed by us all.

    Funeral details will be published in The West in the next few days.

    A wonderful, caring priest who opened our hearts and minds to our world and our God. A man of courage and honesty, a good shepherd who upheld people in prison, people with disabilities, our indigenous brothers and sisters, refugees and asylum seekers - and each of us.
