Sister Perpetua LesterSister Perpetua Lester

60-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1960 – Cumberland, Rhode Island

Current Ministry: Volunteer

Motto: Glory to God


I feel grateful for the opportunities I have had being a nurse, an educator in several areas, a chaplain with different public communities. Yet the greatest value I feel now, looking back at these the years, are the rich ways I have learned to know the God of my longing heart. For this did I come and may I one day be dismissed as a faithful daughter of Catherine McAuley.
