Those agreeing to help run the day were:
Sister Margaret Murray, a Sister of Charity of St. Paul (Selly Park);
Sister Maureen Murphy rsm,
Sister Rose Berrie, rsm (assisted by Sister Teresa Downey rsm)
We were joined also by Sister Maura Halpin rsm.
Maureen opened the day with a beautiful, sensitive and gentle Morning Prayer. The group had time to reflect, to share , and at the end of the prayer were invited to take away the symbol of a tiny flower to keep with them throughout the day. Many wore the flowers in their lapels throughout the day.

The afternoon passed all too quickly. Examples of finished stars, candle holders and place mats were displayed on the floor in the Conference Room.
Everyone was encouraged to speak about their experiences of the day.
Maureen brought the day to a close prayerfully, giving thanks for the gifts and talents of all who had taken part in this very special day.
To Sisters Margaret , Maureen, Maura, Rose, Teresa, and to Andreas (Chef).
