60 Years of Religious Life

Sister Sarah Smith, a member of the Congregation of the Sisters of St Mary of Namur celebrated 60 years of religious life on Sunday 19th August 2017 at Our Lady and St Thomas of Canterbury Church, Harrow on the Hill.

Sister Sarah has spent most of her life as a missionary in both Africa and Brazil. Parish Priest, Father Guy Sawyer, Fr Anton from Liverpool and Father Neville McClement from Lowestoft joined Bishop John Sherrington in a service in which Sister Sarah renewed her vows in front of a congregation of parishioners, friends, and family members. At the end of the service Bishop John presented Sister Sarah with a Papal Blessing. Sister Sarah hopes to be able to continue her ministry of visiting the sick and housebound so that they never feel cut off from their community or alone.’
