On the 21st November, the 223rd anniversary of the Society's foundation, God called our sister Anne RSCJ to the fullness of life with him. A Sacred Heart educator to her fingertips and to the end, for many years Anne was headteacher at Sacred Heart Primary School, Fenham. Then, in 'retirement' she was a spiritual guide at Minsteracres Retreat Centre, before ill health meant a move to Duchesne House, our carehome for sisters in Roehampton, where Anne died peacefully, with her beloved sister and niece at her side.
Please pray with us, and especially for Anne's family, and everyone who will surely miss her. May she rest in God's everlasting peace.
Details of Anne's funeral will follow - No flowers please (except family) but if you would like to give something in Anne's memory she was a great supporter of THE PEOPLE'S KITCHEN in Newcastle. They give various ways on their website but please say In Memory of Sister Anne McCarthy. (www.peopleskitchen.co.uk)
