Message from Sr. Margaret

 

I arrived safely in the Convent in Glasgow on Monday just before noon after a nice journey from Dublin.   The Sisters and Maura Doran saw me off in Dublin and I got a really warm welcome when I arrived in Glasgow.  Sr. Irene accompanied me on the aeroplane and looked after me all the way.  The people at the airport were very kind to me and I was treated like a VIP.

                I want to say a big thank you to you, Fr. Carroll, and Fr. O’Shaughnessy and the people of the parish for their Mass Bouquets, good wishes and acts of kindness to me in so many ways.

                I always said I was so lucky the Order sent me to Cabra.  I loved every minute of it and meeting all the families and also the young people.  I will always keep you in my prayers and especially all those who are sick or housebound and I have arranged for Masses of Thanksgiving for your intentions to be celebrated in Christ the King Church.  

God Bless for now.    Sr. Margaret

 

Thank you Sister Margaret

 

Over the past few weeks many of our parishioners have been extending their thanks,  appreciation and good wishes to Sr. Margaret who has been a Parish Sister in Christ the King Parish for the past 27 years.   Parishioners remember those years of very generous commitment to the sick and housebound by Sister Margaret and the Sisters of the Franciscan Community in Cabra.  She has been a friend to so many, supporting and encouraging families through sickness and at times of bereavement.   Sr. Margaret, who in 1940 entered the Franciscan Sisters Minoress from her native Kilmaley in County Clare has always stressed how welcoming the Parishioners of Cabra have been to her and the Sisters.   As Sr. Margaret moves to the Franciscan Sisters Convent in Glasgow we again express our sincere appreciation to her and wish her God’s Blessing and good health in the coming years.
