FROM FR TIM
Sr Bernadette O.Ss.R., the last Redemptoristine in this country, died in the early hours of last Thursday morning. May she rest in peace. Please pray for the repose of her soul and for the sisters from Dublin who supported her so wonderfully, especially in the final days of her life. Her funeral will be at Nazareth House, Crosby, on Monday 10 April at 11.15am.
COMINGS AND GOINGS: Please be understanding at the present time because the demands recently have been quite considerable. As you know, as well as the death of Sr Bernadette, we have been coping with a number of funerals in recent times and during the coming week, Fr Andrew will be away, as will Fr Charles, who will be giving his first Parish Mission in Birchington and Westgate in Kent. He will be with Fr Charles Corrigan and we assure him of our prayers too.
