A free dress was held on Friday 17th March to raise money for the Ladies of Mary.

The Ladies of Mary (Daughters of Mary and Joseph) are about to close their final house in the Diocese of Middlesbrough. They first came to Scarborough in the early 1880s. During their time here they have lives in Queen Street, South Cliff and Eastfield, and ran the convent school, St Peter’s School and St George’s Nursery as well as providing a great deal of pastoral support to parishioners and others.

Members of the Scarborough parishes are working to contribute to a fund to thank them for their contribution to the Catholic life of the town and diocese, which will be presented during the farewell Mass at St Peter’s Church on Sunday 26th March.

Thank you for your contributions.
