A Medal for Mary

A Medal for Mary

On Sunday 20th January 2019, Mary Murphy received the Diocesan Silver Medal in the Leeds Parish of St Jeanne Jugan.

 

Mrs Murphy (pictured with her Parish Priest, Fr Gerard Kearney) has served St Urban’s for over 50 years through her selfless giving of time, and as a confidante to many, including all the priests of the Parish, particularly those suffering from ill health.

 

She has also been a faithful visitor of the sick and housebound, Sacristan, church cleaner and a Special Minister of Holy Communion to name but a few of her roles over the years.

 

The Parish rejoiced with Mary and her family, and the celebration continued after Mass with refreshments.
