I write with the sad news that Sr Anne Boyd csb, the leader of the Brigidines who are located across the courtyard and are owners of the Kildara Centre (the present site of Heart of Life), died peacefully on 12 September 2023, five weeks after receiving the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
In her message from the Brigidines, Sr Louise Cleary csb described Anne as, “a truly gifted woman of vision & deep spirituality. She so generously shared her knowledge & wisdom with many other congregations, as well as with Earth conscious communities within & beyond Australia.”
For us, Anne was a member of the staff team at Heart of Life in the past, delivering Eco-Spirituality sessions in the Siloam program.
Please hold the Brigidine Sisters, and Anne’s friends and family with love, prayers and deep sympathy as they deal with their shock and sadness.
