Retiring in 2018, Sister Bea had taught religion for 47 years and also served in campus ministry, retiring in 2018.
In the program Sister Bea’s biography included an interesting note. When she was interviewed as a young teacher, she said she wanted to try teaching “only religion,” although Sisters were not advised to teach only that subject at that time. She was given a year and after that her decision would be evaluated. She evidently found her path and her passion. She retired after 47 years of “teaching only religion.”
