    Sr. Leonie O’Neill RSM (Funeral Homily)

    Thirty years ago I contacted Leonie because of her reputation for knowing how to teach people to communicate. Over the years since she became a good friend and this afternoon I had the privilege of celebrating her Funeral Mass. I am happy to share here the homily I gave at Leonie's funeral. Thank you also to Michael Collins, organist at Leonie's funeral.
