The special items placed in the foundation of the new building was a ‘Wish box’, containing relics of Padre Pio & Catherine McCauley (founder of the Mercy Sisters) from the Circle of Friends service users, volunteers and supporters and a Mass Missal, kindly donated by Sisters of Mercy and presented by Sr. Mairead.
