CARDINAL O'BRIEN COMES TO CRAIGMILLAR
A Farewell to Sisters Leaving the Diocese
On Sunday, 4th March 2012, Cardinal Keith Patrick O'Brien, Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh,came to St Teresa's, Craigmillar, to preside at the parish Sunday Mass which marked the departure of Sisters of two Congregations from the diocese. The two Sisters of the Poor Servants of the Mother of God who have been active in the Craigmillar parish for over 17 years are leaving to migrate South. Sadly, they are not being replaced and no other Congregation is able to send Sisters to work in the parish. At the same time, it was farewell to the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary, the "Blue Nuns", who have been active in the diocese for more than 100 years, looking after the old and sick in St Raphael's Nursing Home. For many years friars from the Craigmillar community celebrated Mass for both Sisters and inmates at St Raphael's.
The Cardinal spoke to them all and to the parishioners at a reception after the Mass.
