Happy 90th Birthday Sister Fidelis!

On 27th July this year our beloved Sister Fidelis celebrates her 90th birthday. Sister was a most devoted and faithful co-worker at Mercy House for as long as 10 years, 2001 – 2011, until her community moved her to their retirement home in Port Alfred. It goes without saying that this was a great loss to us and until today she is sorely missed.  

In honour of her service to us, on the first weekend of June, three of us from Mercy House (Eddie, Riccardo and Diana), went down to the Eastern Cape, to celebrate with her, having a special birthday lunch for her.  We stayed with Father Robert, who used to live at Mercy House and who now works in East London.  He took us down to Port Alfred where we spent a day of joy with her.  The pictures below were taken on the happy occasion.
