Mary Rose Bracuti listened with the ear of her heart to the Lord's call to fulfil her vocation as a Consecrated Virgin. The life she has been called to, is to live a consecrated life in the world. She lives a consecrated life for the parish community and the world around her. Mary Rose committed her life solely and utterly to the person of Jesus giving her whole being to the love of God, the God who called her to this way of life.
Over two hundred people including family and friends gathered in a wonderful celebration of prayer with Fr Raglan Hay Will and Fr Gerard Hatton who have been supporting her on her journey. The parish took great delight in preparing and being involved in the ceremony ensuring it was a very special occasion for Mary Rose.

One of the marks of Mary Rose's rule of life is simplicity, simplicity of life dedicated to God. A life wholly dedicated to the life of Christ. A life dedicated to the service of her brothers and sisters.
The parish and the Diocese give thanks to God for Mary Rose's self giving to God for her openness to his call that was celebrated. In the promptings of the Holy Spirit, Mary Rose had the strength and courage to answer His call. Mary Rose will continue to teach at St Thomas a Becket Catholic Primary School where she is the RE Subject Leader for KS1 and KS2.
