65-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1955 – Manchester, New Hampshire

Current Ministry: Ministry of Prayer and Presence

Motto: Christ be My All


My 65 years as a Sister of Mercy have been filled with joys, sorrows, and many supportive relationships. I have been exposed to educational opportunities thatI likely never would have had if not for entering the Community. For 40 years, I served as a teacher. That ministry was followed by the opportunity to work as a senior companion with "Elderly Services" and to volunteer as a Eucharistic Minister at local nursing homes.

As a young person, I always wanted to be outside exploring the world. I grew up by the water and spent many nice days at the beach swimming or just sitting on a log in solitude. To this day, I look forward to my daily long walks and sitting by the pond at the Warde Health Center in Windham, New Hampshire.
