Bishop opens new wing of Nursing Home
Mary’s Convent and Nursing Home Appeal still 25% short of its target
new St Andrew's wing of St Mary's Convent and Nursing Home was opened
on Wednesday 25th June. The building is an extension to the Nursing
Home, and provides individual rooms and facilities for 17 patients.
It replaces an open ward, which can now be converted into further
accommodation to the same standard.
Bishop of Kensington, the Rt Rev Michael Colclough, dedicated the
building after a service in the Chapel. The opening hymn, whose
English words were written by John Mason Neale, the founder of the
order of St Margaret that owns the convent, was "Christ is
made the sure foundation, Christ the head and cornerstone".
The bishop spoke to the original text by St Peter, emphasising the
importance of people above even the fine new stonework.
£1.7m appeal target is now 75% achieved and covers the cost
of the new wing, but the remaining funds are still urgently needed
to complete the upgrading of the older parts of the nursing home.
