SR. BERNADETTE BRASSIL RIP


Sr. Bernadette Brassil was born and grew up in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. She attended the local Primary School in Ballylongford and received her Secondary education in Presentation Secondary School, Tuam and Ballingarry, Co. Tipperary.

She entered Presentation Convent, Warrenmount in 1933, where she spent most of her religious life, apart from six years at Presentation Convent, Rockford manor, Blackrock, Co. Dublin.
Sr. Bernadette was involved in many ministries, particularly in teaching Home Economics.
Due to failing health she spent the last three years of her life in Presentation Nursing home, Kilcock, where she died on 16th June 2008 aged 94.
May she rest in Peace.

On Friday 07 November, Sr. Bernadette was among those remembered at the Annual Mass of Remembrance here in St. Nicholas of Myra. A member of her community lit a candle which bore her name. Like all the other candles lit on that night it was left burning during the mass to remind us that the Christian Community includes all those who have gone before us to the Lord.

Before each candle was lit, the name of the person was called aloud. If you would like to spend a moment or two in quiet prayer you'll find the names of our recently deceased here.
