“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola


Colonel Pace today, with his niece, Father Sloan, and other friends.

It is with great joy that today we were able to celebrate the 97th Birthday of Colonel Tommy Pace, which occurred last Friday.

After Mass most of the congregation repaired to the Hospital refectory for a champagne reception. Father Sloan, the Hospital Chaplain, paid tribute to the Colonel's thirty years of service in the Sacristy, and latterly amongst the knight of Malta. He presented Colonel Pace with a gift on behalf of Matron, Mrs Malcolmson, and the Hospital.

Colonel Pace responded in kind, with a jolly speech thanking all those present for their wishes and kindness.

Ad Multos Annos.
