Congratulations to Ivan and Colleen De Couto who celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary on 27 December. Celebrations began with a Mass at St Catherine’s, Sheffield, presided over by parish priest and family friend, Fr Albert Savaille./br
Colleen and Ivan are pictured holding a Papal Blessing which was arranged for them by the Sisters of the Perpetual Rosary Convent in Fátima, Portugal. Anyone who knows Colleen and Ivan will know of their strong links with Fátima and especially Sr Jacinta of the Convent. Along with the Papal Blessing they also received a congratulatory card from Her Majesty the Queen./br
Needless to say, the night finished off well with a family party hosted by the couple’s nine children and their families at St Vincent’s Catholic Men’s Society club rooms.
