Dorothy Anderson tells us, “The Annual Lourdes Rally took place at St Vincent’s, Crookes, on Saturday, 23 April. This was attended by members of the Union of Catholic Mothers throughout the Hallam Diocese.  Mass was celebrated by Fr Patrick Walsh and was followed by a pie and pea lunch; cakes were provided by the ladies of the St. Vincent Foundation.  We were treated to a fun display by the Sheffield City Morris Men.  Finally, Mrs Pat McNally was nominated as the winner of the Pilgrimage to Lourdes.”
