The St Vincent’s Care Services Maroochydore café has officially been named Tierney’s Café, in honour of one of the Sisters of Charity, Sr Tierney.
Signage has been installed to reflect the new name of the café, as well as a large wallpaper image that signifies the generousity of Sr Tierney, and a detailed history board which reflects upon her incredible life.
Sister Mary Maurus Tierney rsc dedicated 41 years of her life to those less fortunate.
Sr Tierney made a point of serving food and drink to those who sought her charity using white tablecloths and fine china servingware, always addressing the men as ‘Mr’ or ‘her gentlemen’.
In doing so, Sr Tierney provided the poor and vulnerable not only with sustenance and comfort, but with dignity and respect.
Her work has been a source of inspiration within the Sisters of Charity and Mary Aikenhead Ministries, and a number of facilities within the ministry have been dedicated in her name.
