In Memoriam

Help us remember our Sisters.

In death, we say our ultimate human yes to God. Trusting in God’s power to bring us to the fullness of life, we conclude our earthly life with an act of worship: in the action of death we proclaim God as God, and ourselves as God’s creatures. We are called by God and sent by the community; we go in joy!

- You Are Sent, Constitution of the School Sisters of Notre Dame
Catherine's vocation was inspired by her mother’s love and devotion. She had the courage to believe that one finds a friend in suffering. She valued this gift, not only for herself but as she encouraged others.  Her strong belief in God’s presence taught her to find the way home to where God is always waiting. 
Sister Alfreda radiated joy. Her conversations were always positive and witty. Prayer was important to her and she had a loving relationship with both Jesus and Mary, which sustained her in her mission of loving service wherever and however she was called to minister, whether in Canada, England or Bolivia.
Sister Eileen was an avid reader. She enjoyed knitting, especially baby sweaters. She eagerly took advantage of outings, particularly, those involving walking outdoors. Each day after her noon meal, Sister Eileen enjoyed a long walk outdoors with a companion Sister. On December 5, after her noon meal, God accompanied her for a walk into eternity.
