Thirty years ago I contacted Leonie because of her reputation for knowing how to teach people to communicate. Over the years since she became a good friend and this afternoon I had the privilege of celebrating her Funeral Mass. I am happy to share here the homily I gave at Leonie’s funeral. Thank you also to Michael Collins, organist at Leonie’s funeral.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. Sr Leonie taught me speech at St Marys in the 70’s, so it has been a joyful trip down memory lane. Leonie’s tuition is used everyday in my work as a Principal in a Mercy high school! Rest in God’s love Sr Leonie.

  2. Thanks John this is to be shared – a positive side of covid restrictions. I know friends who will appreciate this eloquent funeral homily today because they can relate to the threads of Sr Leonie’s life journey.
