OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe beginning of the year saw great excitement for the 205th St Catherine’s Scout Group when two of their members were chosen to represent Sheffield at the World Jamboree in Japan later this year.

However, Patrick (Pat) Duggan (pictured on the left), a main stay of the troop, died suddenly on June 16th.

Very many people attended Pat’s Requiem Mass, which was celebrated by Fr Albert Savaille.

Pat’s death was a sad loss to the community but the scouts are clear that his spirit will continue on in the Group and with the members visiting Japan.
