“On behalf of the Sisters here in Magheramore it is my great privilege to welcome you all…

and in particular to welcome Sr. Rosarii’s sisters Kathleen and Margaret, family members, relatives and friends.

Welcome also to our priest friends the Columban Fathers….our valued Staff members, and our own sisters who have travelled to be with us.

Our gratitude to Sr. Mary McHugh who is our homilist today and who, like Sr. Rosarii, was also missioned in Korea…

Thanks too to Fr. Pat, our Resident Chaplain,who will lead us in our Liturgy together with our priest concelebrants.

In our celebration of the Eucharist today, we celebrate Sr. Rosarii’s life and give thanks to God for this woman of singular stature…

cherished in the heart of her family; in the heart of the Columban family and in the heart of the Korean people, among whom she spent nearly 50 years of her missionary life.

In this Eucharist also, we unite with our sisters in Korea who, today, are celebrating 60 years since their arrival in Korea.

Sr. Susanna Choi wrote in her email:  “…on 24th October, the Sisters will celebrate 60 years of Missionary life in Korea, which is Sr. Rosarii’s funeral day.

She will be remembered in a very special way with great memories of her life spent on mission in Korea

…the sisters, and the people especially in Jeju, will be very sad for Sr. Rosarii who was a great missionary religious woman.

We are grateful to her for her life and love for our people in Korea. May she rest in peace”.

Dear and beloved Rosarii… may choirs of angels sing you to your rest. Amen.”
