In May, Carmel Care Centre in Hillsborough welcomed Bishop Ralph to its annual celebration. The occasion was enhanced by children from Sacred Heart Primary School, Sheffield with artistic offerings and a donation of £350. They had organised and supported fund-raising activities at their school following a visit from Sr Clare Grimes.
The occasion also saw the launch of the CD, Hard Times ‘Songs for Carmel’. With music by Stuart Hanlon and Sean Gilligan, this has been produced with the generous support of sponsors. It has been dedicated to Fr Mac, one of the founders of Carmel, and is available on request.
