We received the sad and unexpected news yesterday that Christine Beale, a member of the Institute of Our Lady of Schoenstatt, passed away in her sleep yesterday. Christine came over with her family from South Africa a few years ago and made her home here in the south of England. She was a very active member of her Schoenstatt Institute and worked tirelessly in her local Parish Community. Christine, particularly in the last years, suffered greatly with health issues, but never lost her tremendous sense of humour and fun. Please remember her in your thoughts and prayers at the Shrine and remember her sister-in-law Collette and her nephews and nieces who will miss her greatly. She loved to the end and remained loyal to her Covenant of Love to the end. May she rest in peace and rise in glory!
