A group of CPG parishioners attended the funeral of Sr. Stella Clifford at St. Thomas of Canterbury Church in Canterbury on Monday 6th February. Sr. Stella and other members of the Vocation Sisters order, including Sisters Paula, Anne, Marian and Judith, moved to Guildford in 1997, where they lived for around ten years, before moving to Kent. In a simple and moving tribute to Sr. Stella, Sr. Paula Foreman spoke of her love of music and singing, her lifelong struggles with pain and mobility, her constant cheerfulness and her devotion to Our Lady. She also mentioned Sr. Stella's love of playing bingo, her habit of winning and donating the proceeds to a local charity!
Sr. Stella died in December at the age of 84. May she rest in peace.
