Celebration of Thanksgiving and Farewell

For 26 years St. Mary’s Place of Solitude and Prayer has been a spiritual presence in this diocese.  On Thursday, May 26th 2016 there will be a Celebration of Thanksgiving and Farewell to mark the closing of this hermitage.  This celebration will be an opportunity to wish Sheila O’Handley well as she prepares to continue her commitment to the eremitical life in Nova Scotia, and it will be an opportunity to celebrate and give thanks for all the individuals and groups whose involvement and dedication has supported St. Mary’s Place for these last 26 years.  The celebration will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Hermitage with a Liturgy of Thanksgiving followed by a reception at St. Ann’s Hall in Doyles.  All are welcome.
