On May 1, Crossroads held their “Walking Home” fundraiser, to raise money for a new roof at their first house, Harvard House. The walk involved six women walking 15.8 miles from the nearest prison, the California Institution for Women (CIW) in Chino, to Crossroad’s Harvard House in Claremont. This was the second year of this fundraiser and local Newspaper, The Claremont Courier, was on hand to record the event. You can read the article HERE, and watch a video from the event, below:

SISTERS: Telling Our Story – Philomena Morris SSL

 

by Máirín Delaney, coordinator

 

The Sisters of St Louis’ General Chapter 2015 invited the sisters to tell and re-tell the St Louis story “in order to own, celebrate and pass it on to future generations." The story of the Institute is the ‘why’ of the Institute, and telling it is an art of translating our values into action, of constructing our identity, making choices and inspiring action. Telling our story carries a transformative power inherent in the enduring values and lessons about life and mission which are passed on from one generation to another. Our individual and communal stories can be tools for making us whole; they gather up parts of us and put them together in a way that gives our lives greater meaning. 

 

 

 

We are delighted to share with you extracts from the 57th interview in the "Telling Our Story" series, in which Philomena Morris SSL was interviewed by Margaret Healy SSL on February 23, 2022. In her interview, Philomena talks about her missionary work in Ghana and her pastoral work.

 

Philomena Morris SSL was born in 1938 in County Galway and is the eldest of four children. She attended St Louis School in Balla, County Mayo. She entered the Sisters of St Louis in February 1959 when she was 20 years old. She made her first vows in August 1961, and final vows in August 1964. In 1961, she taught in Aylesbury High School in England for a short time. Following this she went to Rathmines, where she taught in the Junior school. In 1962, she attended University College Dublin and graduated in History and English in 1965. In 1965, she was transferred to Great Yarmouth and for two years, she taught in St Louis High School. In September 1967, she moved to Ghana and taught A level subjects in St Louis Secondary School, Kumasi. She was chaplain to the Young Christian Students team of English speaking West Africa. From 1979 to 1980 she studied at the Irish School of Ecumenics and returned to Ghana. In 1983, she returned to England and began working with the Movement for a Better World. In 1985, she attended a training session with the International group in Rome. From then she worked on the International Leadership Team. This entailed working on programmes for renewal and travelling to many countries in different continents. She served as regional superior of the English Region From 1995 to 2001. After a sabbatical in Navan, Ireland, she began working in a busy North London parish. From 2010 to 2013 she was team leader in the English mission. In 2013, she was invited to serve on the Safeguarding Commission of the East Anglian diocese. She has been a Trustee for a number of years. She currently works part time in Our Lady of Muswell Parish in North London.

-----------------------------------------------

 

There are about 155 Sisters of St Louis in the Irish Region. The Irish Region encompasses Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

 

 

 

Most sisters in the Region have reached official retirement age. However, apart from sisters who are ill or very frail, most sisters continue to actively serve others and make the world a better place. We have, however, largely moved from active corporate ministry to one of collaborative outreach and prayerful solidarity with local communities and the wider world. Many sisters are involved in internal ministry and care of each other. Some are also involved in pastoral and prayer ministries, retreat work, chaplaincy, spirituality and religious formation. Still other sisters continue to be active in education in both community and formal settings. This includes second chance education opportunities, teaching English as a second language, acculturation programmes and homework clubs for migrants, development education with particular reference to climate change and the integrity of creation, Governance, strategic development and trusteeship roles.

 

At least 100 sisters who are currently members of the Irish Region have lived and been in ministry in Belgium, Brazil, California, England, France, Ghana, Liberia, or Nigeria.

 

The Charity details for the Irish Region is as follows:

 

Charity Name: Sisters of St Louis, Irish Region

 

CRA: 20014729

 

CHY: 7147

 

Trustees: Uainín Clarke SSL, Mary Connellan SSL, Anne Jordan SSL, Mary Kearney SSL, Anne Murray SSL, Marion Reynolds SSL, and Eithne Woulfe SSL.

DEATH has taken place of the Very Reverend Tom Hickey, retired P.P. Baile an Fheirtéaraigh and formerly of Dingle on the 12th of April 2021. Survived by his sister Maura O' Connor (Limerick), his brother Ben (USA), sister in law Margaret, nieces, nephews, grandnephews, Bishop Ray Browne and the Priests of the Diocese of Kerry, parishioners and the communities in which he ministered.

-------------------------------------------------

 

The late Rev. Fr. Tom Hickey from Rosemount

 

Late Rosemount Priest was "way ahead of his time"

 

 

 

There was deep sadness in Rosemount this week when news broke of the sad passing of one of the most legendary characters the village ever produced, the much-loved Fr Tom Hickey.

 

 

 

A fluent Irish speaker who celebrated the 70th anniversary of his ordination in June of last year, Fr Tom passed away at University Hospital, Kerry on Monday, in his 97th year.

 

 

 

A man who was renowned for his quick wit and great love of life, the late Fr Tom was appointed as Parish Priest of Ballyferriter in 1989 having spent the entirety of his priesthood in the Kerry Diocese, where he served in ten different parishes prior to his appointment to his beloved Ballyferriter.

 

 

 

Marie Burke (née Keenan) a native of Rosemount, and a good friend of the Hickey family, described Fr Tom this week as a man who was “way ahead of his time and a great character.”

 

 

 

She recalled how he made an annual trip to the United States every October right up to four years ago, when he was 94 years old, to visit his brother, Benjy, in New Jersey. “In the two weeks he would be over there he would take the bus into New York on his own seven or eight times to attend a play or a show on Broadway,” she said.

 

 

 

When Fr Tom Hickey was ordained in Maynooth in 1950 he was one of a class of 82 priests, so he went to London to study drama before returning to the Kerry Diocese to begin his ministry.

 

 

 

He was a founder member of Siamsa Tire in Tralee and had a lifelong devotion to drama which brought him into contact with both young and old in every parish where he served.

 

 

 

A superb raconteur, he could captivate a room with his great wit and sense of fun and Marie Burke recalled how his party piece was the witty ballad “I Belong to Glasgow” which he performed with great aplomb at many a get-together in his native Rosemount.

 

 

 

“Fr Tom and his sister, Maura O’Connor, who is 94 and lives in Limerick, used to return to Rosemount for every important occasion we had here up to the time Covid hit, so everyone in the village has many fond memories of all the great nights we had in their company” says Marie.

 

 

 

Only last year, Fr Tom was filmed practicing a Tai Chi routine in the kitchen of his home in Ballyferriter, and said at the time that regular exercise was one of the factors that had contributed to his long and active life.

 

 

 

He knew every town and village in Kerry, where he spent all of his adult life having received his secondary school education with the Christian Brothers in Dingle before he entered the seminary in Killarney. Irish was his first language and he never missed the opportunity to speak in his native tongue among his parishioners on the Dingle Peninsula.

 

 

 

One of the saddest aspects of Fr Tom’s passing is that the people of Rosemount and of his beloved Kerry will be unable to give him “the send-off he so richly deserves” according to Marie Burke, due to the Covid restrictions in place for the celebration of funerals.

 

 

 

“He was just an amazing man in every way, and we will never see his likes again,” said Marie Burke.

 

 

 

Fr Tom, whose late father, Ben Hickey, served as Principal of Rosemount National School from 1920 to 1959, will be laid to rest tomorrow (Thursday, April 15) in the grounds of St. Vincent’s Church, Ballyferriter, Kerry after a private family Funeral Mass in the Church at 2pm.

Nuacht TG4 Fr Tom Hickey death

 

April 12 at 11:39 AM ·

 

 

 

Tá ómós léirithe i nGaeltacht Chiarraí don iar Shagart Paróiste - an tAthair Tomás Ó hÍceadha atá tar éis bháis. Cuimhneófar air - as a scil sa dramaíocht - agus bhí baint mhór aige le Siamsa Tíre - agus le hAisteoirí Bhréanainn.

 

 

 

https://www.facebook.com/NuachtTG4/videos/200117441641014/

 

==================================

 

Heartbroken to hear of the passing of such a wonderful man. Someone like Fr. Hickey should live forever. During his time in Moyvane we won three All Irelands with Spreading the News, Duirt Bean Liom and The Happy Journey. He brought us to places we could only dream of. The Abbey Theatre was the pinnacle. He was a gentleman, a wonderful caring priest, a genius with people. "Good-night, sweet prince; and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest"

 

Anna Maria & Timmy Kennelly, Moyvane.

 

========================

 

Comhbhrón ó chroí le Maura agus Ben ar bás Fr. Tom. Níl sé imithe uaibh ach imithe róimh. Sagart agus comharsain béal dorais den scoth ab ea Fr. Tom. Fear macánta, oileantha, nádúrtha agus oscailte ab ea é. Chuir sé é féin i measc an phobail agus i gceartlár an phobail inar d'obraigh sé agus d'obair sé go díograsach ar son a phobail. Ó Broadway go Halla na bhFeothnaí agus ón Iar-Mhí go dtí an Vaticán agus ó Sráid na Daighide an Daingin - beidh cuimhne ort go deo. Slán leat a fhear uasail. Leaba i measc na naomh go raibh agat. RIP.

 

Dr Paul McKenna, Ennis & Dingle

 

=====================================

 

 

 

========================

 

Sincere sympathy to the Hickey family on the sad passing of Fr Tom. A wonderful priest who we dearly remember for his love of community, drama, music and culture. Many memories of fun and laughter, we had during our drama competitions during his years in Ballinskelligs community. A true gentleman. RIP Fr Hickey.

 

Mary O' Sullivan Emlaghlea, Ballinskelligs

 

-------------------------------------------------

 

Heartfelt sympathy to  his sister Maire ,brother Ben and the Hickey family on the unexpected passing of An tAthair Tomas. When he was assigned to Balloonagh as Chaplin we have good reason to be very grateful for it. He introduced us to a whole new world of  the arts and drama which broadened our horizons.  He was an accomplished actor and  mime artist . He  was held in the highest esteem as a director by professionals at home and abroad.  He was very generous with his talents and had an unerring ability  to identify  them in other people. 

 

Through the medium of Educational Drama his goal was to help individuals fulfill their potential. In keeping with his vocation he had a particular devotion to Religious Drama. His presentations were Stunning and Uplifting. Through this medium he reached out to people of other Faiths and none. For many years his tutorials and classes were appreciated and enjoyed by the  Radius community in Great Britain.

 

Whether he was directing a solo silent performance a school Panto or one of his many epic productions he dedicated all of his expertise to it. The results were awesome and magic. Often the ticket sales helped with the renovation of the Parish Church, local charities and   Emigrant services received a financial boost thanks  to the involvement  of whole communities.

 

  Fr. Tom   Go raibh mile mile maith  agat .  Slan agus Beannacht.

The Songs of Moyvane

 

 

 

by Gabriel Fitzmaurice (1980)

 

 

 

From  Moyvane website

 

 

 

I remember as a very small boy, Tomeen the boss coming into our kitchen singing “Foley’s Jackass”. I laughed at him; he was a funny man. His songs meant nothing to me then.

 

 

 

Years later when I was grown up (say about ten years old!) I heard someone mention a song called “The Rose of Newtownsandes“. I always wanted to hear that song. Call it curiosity or whatever but I wanted to hear it, and in 1975 I finally tracked it down. Donie Lyons of Dromerisk (the flute player) told me of an extraordinary man, Con Greaney of Rooska who sang the song.

 

 

 

Having come of age on a thin diet of Planxty-like folk songs I was not prepared for what I heard. I sat on a sugán chair in Greaney’s kitchen with the microphone in my hand. Greaney exploded into song. I got such a fright that I sat bolt upright in my chair, my heart having missed a beat!

 

 

 

That started me on the collection of trad songs. Since then I have met many men (why must it always be men!), some of them old some middle-aged but every one of them I loved. They had an infinite quality of lovableness and innocence. Their hearts were In their songs; the great Con Greaney, my uncles Billy and Jack Cunningham, Jack McElligott of Gurtdromagowna, the inimitable Jack Carroll, Jimmy Herbert and Mickeen Fitzgerald of sweet Athea to mention but a few.

 

 

 

The songs of Moyvane parish (Newtownsandes as it was formerly called for love of landlords) may be broadly divided into “three categories:

 

 

 

(a)Sporting songs; (b) Political songs and (c) Love songs.

 

 

 

Moyvane has a great and varied sporting history, she has given of her young men who have graced football fields, wearing the proud Kerry jersey in three continents, poets sang their praises as they did of the great Dainty Man, a half blind hound who took Ireland’s best to the cleaners that day in Clonmel when he brought the Derby home to Moyvane.

 

 

 

Moyvane has strong nationalist feelings as is evidenced by the selection of political songs printed here. Remember it was in our parish that the men of “The Valley of Knockanure” were sent to their doom at an early bloom, to spotlight just one tragedy.

 

 

 

And then we have The Rose of Newtownsandes, the best traditional song I’ve heard in years. The air, the mystery; it’s all there. Who was she, where did she come from, what was she, why did the poet write the song? All unanswered questions because everyone has a different answer.

 

 

 

If there’s anyone out there who knows any song, bit of song, poem or verse about the Moyvane/Knockanure area, I would be eternally grateful if you would give them to me.

 

 

 

Easter 2021

 

The Con Greaney programme broadcast on West Limerick 102 FM on Saint Patrick’s Day has received a lot of positive comments, from at home and overseas. A nice selection of Con’s favourite songs was included during the 90 minutes, which was produced and presented by Shirley O’Regan. Gabriel Fitzmaurice, who helped to unearth Con’s talents, and present them to a wider audience, recalled their times together and recited a poem he composed in tribute. Shirley recited Tony Malone’s  tribute song and Michael Allen’s poetry tribute. Ger Greaney, his grandson, gave the family perspective of Con and his lifestyle and  Tom Aherne traced his journey through life. For people who may have missed out on the programme, they can catch it on podcast, on the radio Facebook platform.

A Tribute to Mr. Pierce by his grand-nephew, Paddy Flynn

 

“My granduncle Micheál Pierce of Killarney Road, Castleisland passed away on Friday, in his 91st year on earth. He lived a very long and happy life.

 

Micheál was the first of the cohort of the boys’ secondary school in Castleisland to pass the Leaving Certificate in the late 1940s.

 

Move to Dublin

 

He then moved to Dublin and was the first member of my family to earn a degree, a Bachelor of Commerce at University College Dublin, where I finished my studies today.

 

Micheál went on to work at The Irish Press, taught for a period in England and devoted his final years and great majority of his life to working with his dear friend Sr. Consilio and Cuan Mhuire in Athy, Co. Kildare.

 

As another Sliabh Luachra native, Micheál’s heart always remained here and with thoughts of Castleisland and Ballyheigue.

 

May God be good to him.

Fr Tom was very blessed to have so many wonderful people in his life , a special big thank you to the Muscato family , especially Yvonne and Elio, who took such loving care of him and were life long friends. We have such great memories of Fr Tom, when we visited him in Trafalgar in 1991, 2013 and 2019. We especially loved when he came home to Ireland , he was like a celebrity,  we all wanted him in our company. One of his favourite sayings was Moladh go Deo an Dia ( Irish phrase which means Praise God forever. ) God bless all those great and wonderful people in Trafalgar that were part of Fr Tom's life .

It was great sadness to hear the passing of my Uncle Fr Tom. I have fantastic memories as a young boy of Fr Tom returning to Lissereen for his summer holidays. Everyday was an adventure when he was at home as we travelled the highways and byways of Kerry and beyond visiting cousins relations and acquaintances . Everywhere we visited we were welcomed with open arms , we sang we danced played cards went to football and hurling  matches . Fr Tom had a great sense of fun, a  larger than life character. I would like think he is sitting down tonight with his siblings who have passed on,  playing a game of 31 and rounding it all off with his party piece The Homes of Donegal.

 

Rest in Peace Fr Tom.

Fr Tom's much anticipated visits home were always a source of fun excitement and some of the best of our memories growing up with his convivial presence central to many family occasions. He was equally generous in his welcome to lovely Trafalgar to those of us privileged to visit him  and witness his love for his parish , community and wonderful friends who have shown their mutiual appreciation love and care for Fr Tom over the years. We will miss his visits, his roguish smile, jovial ways and generous spirit. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.

Very sorry to hear of Father Tom's passing. Even though he was far away we always kept in touch with him and he with us. We have great memories of him and he will certainly be remembered in our prayers. When he visited Ireland he always called to our home complete with squeezebox and Bobhran where a great nights entertainment followed.

 

He was one of our own.

Dear Fr Tom, from the day you came to meet me at our farm in  August 1981 that day l will never forget l was a first time mum and l was not in a happy place ,may l set the scene,  l had met Fr Tom when  in the depths of winter l had babies nappies flapping on the line and all was well until the line broke and my beautiful white nappies were no longer white, Fr Tom appeared from nowhere to offer me a blessing, blessing our little family  myself and Paul and the blessed washing line, thank you for visiting when you where most needed, enjoying your videos of your trips to Ireland, and you falling asleep after a hearty meal, with us not knowing who the people were in the video, but the beautiful Irish scenery which you were very proud of your Irish heritage. The day you came for care was the day l could repay you for all you did in our community and for my family, from giving our first born a mass of the angels service as young parents who were having to face this tragedy you helped us to no end. l am a proud aged care nurse and will miss you, thank you for my blessing on Friday morning and thank you form the Morello's
