Message of Appreciation


I would like on behalf of the family to express our thanks to each and all of you for the happy years that Sr. Mary spent with you in Lisburn. She slipped away very peacefully of the 17th August and I know she had many of you in her heart, especially those who are sick in the parish.

We will miss her greatly as a family but like her we can only thank God for the great years she enjoyed which were full of life, joy and treasured companionship shared among you all. ‘Gratitude’ was the word on her lips to the end.

Blessings to each one.

Sister Catherine (sister)
