Sr Mercedes Meade
On Sunday, January 19 the sad news broke of the death of Sr Mercedes Meade, one of the senior citizens of our community, and one of the most loved and respected parishioners of Monasterevin. Humble, faithful, she was a committed Sister of Mercy. Sr Mercedes, from near Abbeyfeale, Co Kerry, spent almost 70 years in Monasterevin. She entered the Mercy Order in St Leos Carlow, and taught in Graiguenamanagh before Monasterevin. where she taught in St Eimhin’s where she was as also a principal. For the past 25 years , most people remember her as the dutiful sacristan who looked after the alter linen and the shrines in the parish church. She was awarded a Benemerenti medal by the Pope in recognition of her sterling service to the parish. Sr Mercedes special ministery was to Catholic religious publications and many people remember her as the Messenger woman, a self effacing woman, those who knew her will remember her for her enormous compassion, her keen mind and her deep interest in people. Monasterevin was blessed to have Sr Mercedes, and in appreciation of her enormous contribution to the parish, the priests and people on Monasterevin would want her family to know how much they valued and miss her and want to extend their deepest sympathy to the Sisters of Mercy, to her family and friends for the loss of this extraordinary christian woman.” Leaba i measc na naomh go raibh aici “
