Eileen O’Connor, Our Local Saint
A new mural has been painted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of death of Servant of God Eileen O’Connor. The mural is painted on the wall facing Elizabeth Street Waterloo at the place where Eileen attended Mass and school.
“Holy and loving God, we give you thanks for your faithful servant Eileen O’Connor. By your grace she united her sufferings to Christ and her prayers to Mary. With great patience she inspired and called other women to be devoted to the care of the sick and dying poor, both in body and in spirit. We humbly ask that the Little Mother, Eileen, who by her ceaseless prayer and suffering inspired others to live the Gospel, may be lifted up and counted among your saints in heaven. Graciously hear our prayers through Christ Our Lord. Amen.”
