30th June 2018  was a gloriously sunny day as rscj from Dublin joined former colleagues, pupils and parishioners in Roscrea for a memorial service to honor the deceased members of the Society of the Sacred Heart who are buried in the community cemetery there. 

In the opening reflection they acknowledged that they had come together to celebrate the dignity and status that those interred in the cemetery were given though Baptism. Those present were reminded that all have been given the same dignity and status consequently we are called to live our lives in union and in imitation of Christ to improve the world in which we live.
