Papal award for Belcoo nunPapal award for Belcoo nun
Monday, 17th January 2005

A special Mass was celebrated last Tuesday night in west Belfast to honour a nun recognised by the Pope for more than fifty years of service. Sister Sheila McGovern, who is originally from Belcoo and is now based at St Louis House at Hillhead, is one of the few in Ireland to have received the 'Pro Ecclesia Et Pontifice' medal which is awarded to those considered to have made a special contribution in different areas of church work. Sister Sheila was recommended for the medal by Father Philip Shryane, parish priest of Bury St Edmonds in Suffolk and a colleague for twenty years.
