Ellen Sayers 2 sOn Monday 28 April, Ellen Sayers celebrated her 100th birthday.  She was granted an Apostolic Blessing from Pope Francis.

Ellen spent most of her working life as a teacher at St Mary Magdalene Catholic Junior School, Maltby.  She worked mainly with the nursery children.  She was also a very loyal and hard working supporter of the Mill Hill Missionaries (St Joseph’s Missionary Society).  She collected endlessly for their work.  One of the priests from the Society visited Ellen to thank her for her work and to join in the celebrations of this special birthday.

Ellen Sayers sFr Richard Gomersall presented Ellen with the certificate to commemorate the Pope’s Apostolic Blessing.
