Sr Margaret Bryans RIP

sr margaretIt is with deep regret that we announce the death of Sr Margaret Bryans, 72 years old, who died on august 13, 2011 in Dublin (Irlande). Margaret entered the novitiate in 1957 in Weymouth, England, and she was professed on August 02, 1964 in Paris (France). Speaking at her funeral, Sr Mary Mc Closkey SS.CC. said, "God blessed Margaret with a simplicity of presence. She didn’t need to be the centre of attention but quietly in the background got on with life...she gave of herself generously and honestly, whether that was simply by the many random and indeed practical and ordinary acts of kindness within community, or the quality of her presence to the needs of the younger sisters who came from abroad to learn English. The number of emails in recent weeks from around the Congregation asking after Margaret, praying for her and wishing her well, testify to the far-reaching impact and witness that Margaret had and to how much she was held in esteem and appreciated through out our Congregation." Ar dhies Dei go raibh a anam. May she rest in peace.
