Macroom Sisters of Mercy

Farewell to Srs Francesca, Assumpta, Consilio, Mary and Colette

The 24th Sept is a special day for all of us here in St Joseph’s. We joined St Mary’s Secondary School for a special Mass in the Parish Church. It was the last Mercy Day in Macroom for the Sisters who live in the Convent.  Srs Francesca, Assumpta, Consilio, Mary and Colette are moving to different Convents.We had a lovely procession at the beginning of Mass, telling us about the Sisters connections with the people of Macroom. This was depicted by a display in front of the altar with bright coloured fabric interwoven with pictures from Macroom. The candles which the sisters had been given at the Parish Farewell Liturgy were part of this display.

  • A Roll Book was a symbol of the Sisters connection with families
  • Hands symbolised how people were helped in sickness and bereavement.
  • A basket of food symbolised the Sisters connection with the people
  • A crucifix symbolised the work of  the Sisters the the Parish Church.
  • The lights which the girls from St. Mary’s Secondary school brought symbolised the light how the values and traditions started by the Sisters in 1865 are alive today.
  • Two candles given to St Joseph’s  and St Mary’s, symbolising the continuation the continuation of the traditions and values which the Sisters started in 1867.
 There was a function in the school on the 14th of September for the Sisters who are leaving the Convent. A presentation was made to each of the Sisters by Mr Pat Halloran, Chairperson of the Board of Management. He paid tribute to the contribution made by the Sisters to primary education since the school was started in 1867. This was followed by light refreshments.
