Feast of the Immaculate Conception

Sisters from the three communities in London gathered together in Pope John House, Poplar  to celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.

We chose to gather on Sunday 9th December as the morning Mass in the parish – St. Mary and St. Joseph’s – was a memorial Mass for Sr. Helen Downe fcJ who died in October.  She had lived and worked in the local area for almost 50 years.

After the Mass we gathered together, enjoyed a wonderful meal and time of prayer together.  It was lovely to come together to give thanks for the life of Sr. Helen and celebrate this important feast in our Society.
