TRIBUTE TO CARMEL DUFF
Described on the funeral notice as ‘the last of the Duff family’, a first cousin of Legion Founder, Frank Duff, died on Sunday 2nd April 2017 at Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown, County Dublin having been removed from Millbury Nursing Home, Navan, where she had spent the last few years. She was aged 93 years. Having wide Legion experience and a fluent knowledge of French she undertook correspondence on behalf of Concilium with Councils in French-speaking areas of the world, notably French-Canada and also more remote territories, making a valuable contribution during her life to the Legion.
Carmel’s funeral Mass was celebrated in St. Cuthbert’s Church Boyerstown, Navan on Tuesday 4th April in a packed Church. The Celebrant availed of the occasion to sing the praise of the Legion worldwide, but especially in China and in his own parish of Boyerstown.

Quote of the Day
Let us not forget that the early Church was a close-knit believing community in which all the members gave great mutual support to one another.

That spirit of the early Christians by which they prayed together, shared fellowship, were united in heart and soul, gave them great heart in the face of the tasks ahead.
Fr. Paul Churchill, Archdiocese of Dublin
