Richard Pengelley 103 webDean of Perth ~ The Very Reverend Richard Pengelley
Richard was born in Bahrain and came to Australia as a “10 pound Pom” with his parents and two older sisters in 1966, by which time he was a competitive swimmer. He went on to represent Western Australia in junior and senior swim teams and was captain of the City of Perth swimming club. He was educated at Churchlands Senior High School, and graduated from the University of Western Australia as a PE teacher in 1981. After working in state schools he accepted a job at Hale School where he felt a call to the priesthood. He studied theology at Murdoch University, was ordained and exercised his ministry as Chaplain at the School. 

He has since run a large parish, been a university college Chaplain, Assistant Professor in Sports Science, and Sub-Dean of UWA Community. Prior to his appointment as Dean of Perth, Richard was the Director of Service Learning and Leadership at Christ Church Grammar School where he enjoyed the opportunity of taking students to meet, work with and befriend some of the more disadvantaged members of both our society and those around the world.

Richard is a dual Olympian, World Championship player and was captain of the Australian water polo team. He is a life member of both the Triton and UWA Torpedoes water polo clubs.

Richard retired as Chair of the Special Olympics WA and True Blue Dreaming in 2014, an organisation that seeks to link university students as mentors to educationally disadvantaged youth and children in remote and regional WA. He is on the board of the WA Institute of Sport and has enjoyed media work as a commentator for the ABC and Channel 7. He is an advisor, host and presenter for the Positive Schools Mental Health and Wellbeing Australia-wide conferences. He has been Chair of Anglican Youth Ministries, a national Synod representative, member of the Diocesan Council, an Examining Chaplain, Spiritual Director, retreat leader, Rector of St Nicolas’ Carine-Duncraig and Honorary Canon of St George's Cathedral since 1999.

The Pengelley family joined the Cathedral family in 1972 when they relocated to Perth. Richard has gone on to be a server, verger, member of the youth group, honorary canon, and was married by Dean Vernon Cornish and Precentor David Thornton-Wakeford in 1981. His Dad, Bruce, was a choir member and Mum, Janet, led the Women's Fellowship. Both his father and grandfather are interred in the crypt.

He rates as his finest sporting achievement winning the Cathedral table tennis tournament in 1976 and the trophy has pride of place on his desk.

Richard is married to Jo, a teacher, with three adult daughters, two of whom are teachers. His passions include sport, the beach, reading, movies, travel, hearing people’s stories, and boys and men’s spiritual and emotional health.

He still tries to re-live old glories by playing master’s water polo.
