Head Teacher with OBE Receives Papal Award

Bishop Kieran hands Certificate to Mrs Angela O'Connor
Deborah Madden-Towsey reports that:
"Here in Hastings we had the tremendous honour of receiving Bishop Kieran to celebrate a special Mass at St Mary Star of the Sea on Sunday 27 November. The Mass, which inaugurated the first Sunday of Advent, was concelebrated with Bishop Kieran by our parish priests, Fr. John O’Brien and Fr. Joseph Soosai Marian. It was a beautiful and uplifting occasion where Bishop Kieran reminded us about the spirit of Advent and the importance of making time for prayerful reflection in the run-up to Christmas.

The Bishop was also invited to present the recently-awarded Papal Honour of the Bene Merenti Medal to Mrs Angela O’Connor OBE. The Bishop’s presentation was a wonderful opportunity for the school and parish to thank Angela for her outstanding contribution as a teacher and Head Teacher at Sacred Heart School for over thirty years. All at the parish congratulate Angela on this achievement and wish her the very best for a well deserved retirement."

Well done Angela!
