Sister Clare's mother, Margaret Crockett, died on September 1, 2019, after months of illness. The Home of the Mother wants the Crockett family to know that we are close to them and are praying for them in these painful moments.
Sr. Clare loved her family very dearly and always prayed for their salvation. Now that the moment has arrived for her mother to present herself before the Lord, we ask all of the members and friends of the Home of the Mother to keep the Crockett family in their prayers so that Our Lord rewards the love and dedication this woman has shown towards her family as well as her generosity and her capacity to make sacrifices in educating her daughters.
We were not able to attend her funeral, which took place on Tuesday morning, September 3, 2019, at her parish in Long Tower: St. Columba. Our Sisters who are usually present in Ireland are currently in Spain and were unable to make it to the funeral. Nevertheless, from our house in Zurita in Cantabria, Spain, our community gathered together with Fr. Rafael Alonso, our founder, to watch the Mass broadcasted over the parish's webcam and joined the Crockett family in prayer.
