A Letter from Sr. Eileen Healy OLA: During the week I received the following letter from Se. Eileen Healy who visited us here in Fermoy last weekend.
To the Priests and Parishioners of Fermoy Parish,
My most sincere and heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for your warm and genuine welcome to me last weekend. I was very touched by your generosity, friendliness and openness to my talk and I carried away with me so many kind words of encouragement and hope.
My visit strengthened my own faith and trust in the goodness of people and I saw for myself what I had been told, about Fermoy being a powerhouse of prayer and help for the less privileged.
May God bless you all with His peace and healing and reward you for your generosity with happiness and security for you and your families. May you have the knowledge that your lives are precious and sacred and a reflection of God’s own life, living and working here in Fermoy.
Yours Sincerely and gratefully,
Sr. Eileen Healy, O.L.A.
