Regional Couple

Fran and John Whelan – Regional Couple 2015-2019

We have been married for 33 years.  Our family includes our daughter, and we live in Bendigo where we work as a teacher and solicitor.

Teams is a special part of our lives, and very much part of our marriage journey.  Our daughter was born after joining our Team, and the happy as well as difficult times have been shared with a supportive and loving group.

We were part of the Sector Team in Bendigo before accepting the role of Regional Couple in 2015. Teams has enriched our marriage spiritually, as a couple and as a family, with lasting friendships and support within our Vic West Region to the wider Teams movement.

We’re very happy to be in touch about Teams, and can be contacted on
