Our whole Diocese and every parish within the Diocese hold a huge debt of gratitude to the many volunteers who faithfully and devotedly carry out ministries within their community.

  One such person is Edna Daly who, for fifty two years, has provided the music at St Mary’s, Penistone for the celebration of Masses, for funerals, weddings and many other services.  Edna was the organist but also accompanied the parish music on a variety of musical instruments.  After more than half a century of devotion to her role Edna recently retired.

  Our photos show Fr Joseph Okeke and the parish community offering Edna their thanks.  We, too, as a Diocese, thank Edna and all the many volunteers across the Diocese who support and enhance our parish communities as we work for the coming of God’s Kingdom.
