This year, Sr. Clare Crockett's anniversary falls on Holy Saturday. Six years have already passed since the death of our dear Sister. On this sixth anniversary of Sr. Clare’s death, the Home of the Mother and the EUK Mamie Foundation have prepared material that can help us, both children and adults, get to know her better: a new biography, a book of articles written by Sr. Clare addressed to children, and a new video that summarizes her conversion in 15 minutes.
There is a word spreading that Sr. Clare’s tomb will be moved to Rome this October. We do not know how this rumor started, but we would like to clarify that it is totally false. Sr. Clare’s tomb will remain in Derry and there are no plans for it to be moved.
By Fr. Colum Power, SHM: Twenty-six unarmed Catholic civilians were shot by British soldiers in the Bogside Massacre on Bloody Sunday, the 10th of January 1972. Fourteen of them died. I was six years and four months old, in first class in primary school.
It would be very sad if the school closes because of economic deficit after all of the work done by the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother did to build up this institution.
Tomorrow is April 16 and it will be four years since Sr. Clare passed away together with María Augusta, Mayra, Jazmina, Catalina and Valeria in the earthquake in Ecuador.
