Farewell to Sister Diana – Saturday 6 July 2024

Mass and gathering to say farewell to Sister Diana – Saturday July 6th
Dear friends, after over 18 years of service to St Antony’s parish, sister Diana will
sadly be leaving us this summer for their community in Wolverhampton. Sister
Diana has worked tirelessly over the years for some of the most
vulnerable and needy members of our community through her parish outreach
and as chaplain of Newham hospital. The humble service she and her
community, the sisters of St Joseph of Tarbes provide, has inspired
generations of parishioners and members of the wider local community. She will
be dearly missed by us all. We wish her all the best on her new endeavours and
she will very much be in our prayers. Sister Lavina who is currently in
Wolverhampton will be coming to replace her here in Forest Gate. She has
already lived here in the past and will be warmly welcomed in our midst.
On Saturday July 6th there will be a thanksgiving Mass at 10am followed by a
gathering in St Clare’s Hall. This will be an opportunity to say goodbye to sister

Diana and to welcome sister Shanthi (Lavina) among us.
