The Companions’ Centre in Glasgow was delighted to receive a visit from the Companions Chairman, Paul Letman, and the Secretary, Alice Murphy, on Saturday. The day began with Mass celebrated in St Patrick’s Church by Father Francis, in memory of Axel Christie, the much-loved infant grandson of Companions Gordon and Maureen Brankin of Aberdeen, who died last month after a short life of 100 days.
After visiting the Centre, the party decamped to a nearby restaurant where key-members of the Centre were presented with certificates of appreciation by the Delegate, Lord Norreys.
Many thanks to all of those who travelled long distances to be with us – Alice, Paul, Henry, Richard Baillie and Ian Southward as well as all of those we honoured on Saturday for their immense contribution to the creation of the Centre: Bishop John Keenan, Liam Hackett, Caroline Paul, Sangeeta Francis, Anne Hey, Michael Diamond, Jennifer Robertson, Bryan Elder and Tommy Gorman.
Paul’s visit to Scotland continued with a visit to Order of Malta Dial-a-Journey in Stirling – report to follow.
