Members of the Good Shepherd RC Parish are preparing to say farewell to a pair of popular nuns.

Sisters Veronica and Teresa are moving to a new home on the south coast after first coming to Colne in 2000, along with the late Sister Mary, to help out at Sacred Heart Church in Colne.

A thank you service and farewell mass will be held at Sacred Heart Church on Wednesday at 6-30pm, followed by refreshments in the hall.

Retiring to Colne was something of a homecoming for Sister Teresa and Sister Veronica, in particular.

Sister Teresa was born and raised in Colne, attending Paddock House School in Padiham while Sister Veronica taught in Derby Street at the convent, the now demolished school in Queen Street and was one of the first members of staff at Fisher More RC High School when it opened in 1965.
