Sister Teresa Hawkins RIP

Sister Teresa Hawkins RIP

We were very sorry to hear that Sister Teresa Hawkins died on Wednesday 9 March 2016 at the Holy Cross Care Home in East Sussex.

Sister Hawkins arrived at Farnborough Hill as a young nun in 1939 and remained here until she retired to Lafosse House, moving to East Sussex in 2013. Generations of girls responded to her motherly kindness and she in turn was devoted to them. She will be remembered with much fondness.

Sister Hawkins is pictured here celebrating 70 years as a nun in 2010.


Arrangements for the Funeral

There will be a Requiem Mass in the School Chapel on Tuesday 22 March 2016 at 2.30 pm.  Refreshments will be available afterwards in the Refectory.  It would be very helpful to us to know the numbers of people attending the Mass, so if you would like to attend, please email:
