Sister Jean-Marie LaFreniereSister Jean Marie LaFreniere

60-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1957 – Burlington, Vermont

Current Ministry: Prayer ministry

Motto: My Lord and my God 

Sixty years ago, as a Sister of Mercy, newness became a part of my life as it did for everyone. Change is constant, but the message from Jesus is the same: "Let the children come to me." For 47 years, I taught elementary and middle school—most recently at Mater Christi School, where I taught for 32 years. Now I am retired. My life in Mercy has enabled me to grow in an ever-deepening relationship with God. I am grateful to all of the people—parents, family, Community, friends and students—who have helped me grow in my spiritual life. The Spirit within me also dwells vibrantly in the people with whom I live and serve. Jesus, I say, "My Lord and my God," and every day is a new experience of your love for me.
