34 YEARS OF CARING
Park Mount Care Home in Macclesfield is situated in beautiful grounds, it is purpose built and was opened on the 7th December 1984.The site has been the charitable bequest of the late William Goldman. The home was registered for twenty residents in single en-suite rooms, and the first three residents arrived on the 15th December 1984 and by Christmas we had nine residents living here. The home was officially opened and blessed by Bishop Gray on 5th May 1985, by which time it was full with twenty residents. Day care had already begun on 25th March 1981 at premises adjoining St. Albans Church they then moved to Parkmount in 1985.
Day-care was run by Sr. Anne McCoy with the help of volunteers and drivers three days a week. Now day-care is available every day and our visitors can enjoy our facilities a walk in the garden, a meal with a loved one and we can also offer personal care to ensure their regular carer’s and relatives get a well-earned break.
Joyful celebrations of Sr. Christine Bohr´s 97th birthday and 75th anniversary of Consecration.
The celebration was like the lifting of a curtain exploring the memories that are stored in memory and in the heart. On this day the distinguished jubilee celebration was accompanied by the community and friends of Sr. Christine and Sr. Anna Małdrzykowska SAC, General Councilor and Sr. Magdalena Pinto SAC, Superior of the community in the Procura.
We wish Sr. Christine:
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace”.
▪ Sr. Anna Maria Langpohl’s celebrated 105th birthday in Park Mount on the 25th. It was a joy to have her relatives from Germany with her – Ulrich and Mechtilde, who stayed for two days. She received many cards and flowers and even a cake and champagne brought by Agatha from St. James’ Parish, in Spanish Place, London where she worked for almost 30 years. For several weeks she has not been feeling well, but she is a little stronger these days.
▪ Led by the parish Prayer Group and Sr. Mary McNulty an Ecumenical Prayer Meeting was held in Park Mount Residential Home for the Elderly. All enjoyed the singing and praying together.
