The Sisters are greatly comforted by all the cards, calls, messages and Masses that have been offered giving us prayerful support and for the expressions of appreciation of Sister Benedict in her ministry of service of 67 years. We are deeply grateful to all the staff who have cared for her, particularly over the last 2 years in the Nursing Home, as she gradually declined in health until her peaceful death on Saturday 19th March 2022. May she rest in peace.

Her funeral took place on Thursday 24th March and was celebrated by Fr John Mackie with Fr Dixie and attended by 5 of her family members from Ireland as well as Sheila, Shirley and staff members along with the Community - we are still practising Covid caution. A recording is available on the website. Sister was buried with Sr Maria Goretti on a beautiful day and many memories and much laughter was shared.

Thank you to everyone who has been in contact - a Mass is being offered in thanksgiving.
