Advent is a time to look forward – to the birth of the Christ Child at Christmas but, more importantly, to His return in glory at the end of time.
During Advent the SMA Blackrock Road community also looks back, to remember our loved ones who have died during the year – priests, family members and relatives of our lay staff. 2014 saw the largest number of deceased SMA priests for many decades. We bid ‘adieu’ to 10 of them, ranging in age from 95 to 73. The Lord also called home Miss Beta Feeley, an SMA Honorary member.
