Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

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.
