Sr. Benedicta RIP

Sr. Benedicta RIP

It is with great sadness that we record the passing of our Sister Benedicta who died peacefully on the morning of Sunday July 24th at 7.15am. Sr Benedicta has been a faithful member of OHP for 55 years and has lived a long and very fruitful life, mostly in Swaziland, now Eswatini. Here she pioneered work with the Swazi Youth and Aids orphans. To the end of her life she still referred to them as ‘her youth’ even though (in the words of one of them) they are now involved in running the country!

When the time came for her to relinquish her work in Swaziland and return to the U.K. she embraced the life by becoming a British Citizen.

May she now Rest in Peace with her Lord.
