“I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen!”
Sister Kathleen Kirk was an Irish Lassie and a musician throughand through, and how fitting that the sheet music of this song was in her file. Did she have a premonition that the Lord wouldbe singing this melody to her in the wee hours of April 14, 2014?
Sister Kathleen was born the second daughter of five children to William and Marguerite (Clancy) Kirk on September 29, 1916. Kathleen was baptized one month later on October 29 at her Parish Church, St. Pascal’s in Chicago, Illinois, and attended St. Pascal Grade School and Alvernia High School in Chicago. Her connections to St. Pascal Parish remained strong over the years. She became part of the parish staff in 1955 when she was assigned there to teach music and play the organ.
