Sr. Ursula Hyland

1937 – 2019

  sr. Hyland 2

Sr. Ursula was the parish sister here from 1993. While we recognize that her amazing work with the sick, the housebound, the first communions, the baptismal preparation, her support of all the clergy she met in her time, and so many parishioners she came to know leaves an awesome heritage. her faithfulness to the Mass and her prayers throughout her time here will have the deepest impact. 

May her soul and souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace.

She was well known in the diocese and indeed throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland for her work with HCPT and the organising of the week in Lourdes and her work with the Catholic Children’s Society over many years. In the parish she ran the folk group and was the child protection rep, as well as being involved in various initiatives, including those of a youth work nature.

We pray for Pope Francis I:

pope-francis Lord, source of eternal life and truth, give to Your shepherd, the Pope, a spirit of courage and right judgement, a spirit of knowledge and love. By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care may he, as successor to the apostle Peter and vicar of Christ, build Your church into a sacrament of unity, love, and peace for all the world. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
