Our Lady of Combermere (also called the Questing Madonna) is pictured running with arms outstretched to embrace all her children and meet them in their need.
June 8, 1960, the day the statue was blessed by Most Rev. William J. Smith, the bishop of Pembroke, was one of the most important days in our history. Our Lady of Combermere became known as the mother of our community, sent by her Son to protect us and guide our journey into the heart of her Son.
In accepting to play her unique role in the Lord’s saving plan, Mary is a model for us in learning to listen to the whispers of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Through her intercession we receive the grace to become, like her, a humble instrument in the hands of our loving God.
