On Saturday 7th March we said goodbye to Bruno. It was an emotional moment as he had been with us here in Kendal for four years, the last nearly two of those as Responsible.
We gathered together for a beautiful celebration of Holy Mass with Fr Michael, Fr Hugh and Fr Philip celebrating. At the end of the mass Bruno received a blessing from the priests to help him in the next steps of his walk. After that a lovely plate of lasagne was enjoyed by the many friends of the House who had come to wish Bruno well in his ongoing walk.
Chris said a few words about Bruno’s time here, remembering about his arrival in the floods during Storm Desmond, and thanked him for his friendship and for his contribution to the House. Bruno then greeted everyone with heartfelt words and thanked the Community and Mother Eliva for having given him back his life.
