Mary Walsh R.I.P.

On this joyous day, it is with great sadness that we report the passing of a very special pilgrimage family member.

Mary Walsh passed away yesterday morning (Christmas Eve). Mary was very much loved and well known to many of us. An incredible and infectious personality and the life and soul of the party. This year was Mary's 51st pilgrimage to Lourdes and she was very much looking forward to joining us for her 52nd next Summer. 

We pray for the repose of her soul and for her family, friends and the staff of Nazareth House.

Fr. Peter Birmingham R.I.P.

With sadness we report the passing of another member of our Salford family.

May he rest in peace.
