Madeleine McCann's parents to say anniversary
mass in Liverpool
Each Sunday, the church holds a children's Mass at which Madeleine is
remembered, and Mrs Healy said: 'The support we have had from our parish
priest, Father Desmond Keegan, has been solid all along.
'Whenever we have needed his help, he has been there.
'He is leaving the parish soon and moving to Edinburgh, and we want to
say he's been absolutely tremendous.'
Meanwhile, Kate McCann's 384-page book ' Madeleine
' is being published on May 12, her daughter's eighth birthday.
Mrs Healy said: 'Kate has to tell her story, even though it's been the
most terribly painful process over the last nine months. We just hope
that something will come from the book. It's something that may just
force someone to come forward. It's also an account for Madeleine and
for the twins (six-year-old Sean and Amelie).'
Transworld won the rights to publish Kate's account of how her daughter
vanished during a family holiday in Portugal in 2007 and the subsequent
efforts to find her. When the deal was announced, Kate explained: 'There
are several different reasons as to why I finally came to the decision
with my husband, Gerry, to write and publish this book.
'Many factors needed to be given thorough and careful consideration, not
least the impact of such a book on the lives of our three children. My
reason for writing is simple; to give an account of the truth.
'Publishing this book has been a very difficult decision and is one that
we have taken after much deliberation and with a very heavy heart.' But
she also stressed that with 'the depletion of Madeleine's Fund (Leaving
No Stone Unturned Ltd) it is a decision that has virtually been taken
out of our hands'.
She added: 'Every penny we raise through its sales will be spent on our
search for Madeleine. Nothing is more important to us than finding our
little girl.' And Gerry McCann said: 'Our hope is that it may prompt
those who have relevant information to come forward and share it with
'Somebody holds that key piece of the jigsaw.'
The publishers have secured an exclusive
serialisation deal with a national newspaper group.
