Farewell to Sr Mary Julian and Welcome to Sr. Mary Cora
As you know, after a year working here in the Parish, Sr. Mary Julian will leave us this Friday to return to Australia to take up an academic post as a Lecturer in Philosophy. Her short sojorn here with us has been a great blessing for the parish and we wish her well as she begins this new stage of her life. We will miss her very much and hope that one day she will at least return to visit us again. On Tuesday, Sr. Mary Cora will arrive to take over from Sr. Mary Julian. I know that you will all make her very welcome.
God bless you all,
Fr Patrick, Fr Nick, Deacon Peter, and (for the last time) Sr. Mary Julian
