Remembering Our Cloud of Witnesses

Featured image

At our Remembrance Ritual on Saturday, October 8th, we took time to honour and reflect upon the lives of our Sisters in the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Congregation of Jesus and members of our extended Mary Ward Family, those who have died between September 2014 and October 8, 2022.

We believe that all the ties of friendship and affection which knit us as one throughout our lives do not unravel with death. Confident that You, O Holy One, remember the good we have done and forgive our sinfulness we ask You to gather this great cloud of witnesses to Yourself.

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine on them.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace.
