Thank you for visiting our parish website.
We are very sad to learn of the passing of a wonderful lady:
Sister Colette Ellis FMOL
Sister Colette was the first contact with our Ethiopian Mission way back in 1985. She had worked in our deanery at St Francis' Home in Langholm and when the parish was working towards raising funds for the Ethiopian famine a ready made connection existed with the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady. That connection with the FMOL's continues to this day as did our relationship with Sr Colette. The local superior in Mullingar, Sr Clare, spoke with Fr Jim telling of Sister's peaceful passing this morning (24th March). In one breathe just after her breakfast she left us and went to heaven. Sister would have reached 100 years of age in 5 weeks time. Sr Colette's Requiem Mass will take place in Mullingar Cathedral on Monday 27th March at 10am.
May she rest in peace. Amen.
