  18. BoM, Staff & pupils of St Joseph's Primary School Templemore

    With the passing of Sr. Helen Kennedy, we the Board of Management, Staff and Pupils of St. Joseph’s P.S., Templemore, mourn the loss of an inspiring mentor, spiritual guide and sincere friend. For many years Sr. Helen served on the Board of Management of our School, continuing an unbroken tradition of Mercy Sister involvement at St. Joseph’s, dating back to its foundation in 1951.
    As advisor, helper and trustee, Sr. Helen brought a wealth of knowledge and rich experience to our school community, drawn from a life spent in the service of others, in the model of Mercy foundress, Catherine McAuley.
    Capable, tireless and dedicated, Sr. Helen was, indeed, more than the sum of her parts. Above all we knew her as a warm and encouraging friend – one whose calmness, discretion and deep spirituality made her presence that of a welcome ‘anam-cara’ to staff and pupils alike.

    On behalf of our family can i extend my sincere condolences on the passing of Sr Helen. We are all shocked. I knew of Sr Helen and of her kindness before I worked with her as a member of the Liturgy Committee over the past few years, as well as on Parish Renewal recently but working with her she was a wealth of information and help which she gave freely and warmly and you always knew that if she could do something for you, or help you in any way, that you could always ask. She was the definition of a good, kind and considerate person. She always asked after everyone in the family and in the Butlers as well, as she had so much time for Johnny and Mary as they did for her. She will leave behind her a legacy that will be hard to emulate but will endure for decades to come. May she rest in peace.

    Sr Helen was such a kind and caring person. Always had time for a chat. She was principal of our lady’s during the years I attended. She always remembered her past pupils names and took a personal interest in each student. She even bought me a tonic and I had to go to her office every morning to take a few spoons. My mother had died and she went above and beyond to ensure I was healthy. Of course as a teenager i didn’t appreciate it at the time!! May you RIP Sr Helen and I will hold fond memories of you forever, sleep tight. I want to extend sincere sympathy to the sisters of Mercy and the Kennedy family at this difficult time.

You were principal in Our Lady’s when I was in school there and that wasn’t an easy task especially with the amalgamation of the two schools but you succeeded with ease. You always took time out after Saturday night mass to come up and compliment our singing and music in the Folk Group in Templemore and we really appreciated that. May you now be in heaven with your good friend Sr. Breda. Thank you for everything you did for us all here in Templemore. Rest In Peace now Sister Helen.

    I was saddened and shocked to hear of Helen’s sudden death and extend my sincere sympathy to Helens beloved family and the Srs of Mercy, Templemore and South Central Province. Helen was an incredible woman, strong, faithfilled and generous with her time, knowledge and compassion. She touched the lives of so many and will long be remembered and held in high esteem by so many in the many places she lived and ministered. Breda and herself are reunited sooner than anyone would have thought. May they both rest in peace.

    Sincerest sympathies to the extended Kennedy family and the Sister of Mercy Community on the sad passing of Sr. Helen, who was a much loved person in Templemore and environs. She was very involved in school, parish and community life. As a former curate in Templemore parish, I worked with her in various capacities and her wisdom, kindness, gentle nature, friendship, hospitality and liturgical talents will be sorely missed. Sorry that I cannot attend her funeral Mass due to a prior family commitment, but she will be remembered both in my prayers and Masses. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
