Dear Friends,

I was just informed of the terribly sad and unexpected news that our dear Robyn Reynolds died in Ireland from a heart attack just as she was preparing to start a month’s retreat. She had been so busy last week saying goodbye to friends and family. She was so excited and delighted. I got a lovely letter from her on Friday so typically her – caring, supportive and encouraging. This was a trip of lifetime, first with the sabbatical program and then months in Rome. Apparently, she took ill on the flight over and was transferred to a hospital in Dublin where she died 7:30pm our time.

When I know more I will let you know. She was such a person of passion and care for family, community, our indigenous brothers sisters, and all her students at YTU and Heart of Life.

Let’s pray for the repose of her soul knowing – her big heart is now in the heart of God.

Chris CP
