Sister Stacey's Final Vows
A massive congratulations to Sister Stacey Angela Cameron who made her Perpetual Profession of Vows as a Missionary Sister of St Peter Claver in St Gerard's Church on Saturday 25th March, the Solemnity of the Annunciation. It was a most beautiful occasion, with Holy Mass celebrated by Bishop Joseph Toal and Priests from across Scotland, followed by a joyful reception in St Gerard's Primary School.
Our thanks to Sister Stacey, her order and her family for allowing our parishes to share in such a memorable occasion. Please continue to pray for Sister Stacey as she begins this next stage of her life as a Sister of St Peter Claver.
On behalf of our parish we would also like to thank each and everyone of you from St Gerard's & Sacred Heart who played a part in the preparation for the event and on the day itself. To the Abide group and those who helped in the organisation, our wonderful Altar Servers, passkeepers and sacristans, the ladies who cleaned and prepared the Church, the army of people who helped at the reception, to Mr Conaghan and St Gerard's Primary School for warmly welcoming us into their school for the reception, to the many people who gave generous donations of home baking and to anyone who helped in anyway in ensuring it was a truly amazing day. May God bless and reward you all.
Thanks also to everyone from outside of the parish who helped in anyway to provide a beautiful liturgy and help make it a truly special occasion. To the Choir from St Joseph's & St Dominic's RC Churches - G33 area of Glasgow for the magnificent music, to Sancta Familia Media who filmed the Mass and to Fr Stuart Parkes, Fr Kenny O'Brien and Lisa Diver who served as MC's, to the many Priests from across Scotland who concelebrated and finally to His Lordship, Bishop Joseph Toal, for celebrating a very moving liturgy.
Once again a massive congratulations to Sister Stacey Cameron!!!
