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
Sister Margaret Mary Glick, SSND
A woman of many talents, Margaret was kind and gentle.  She had a keen mind and was a patient listener.  Margaret was a prayerful, positive person who didn’t give up and students felt that it was “a pleasure to be taught by her.”   Sisters at Villa Assumpta viewed their time with Margaret as a privilege to be cherished.  
Provincial Councilor Mary Roy Weiss spoke so gratefully of the date, December 10, 1961, when she, as an 8th grade student at Immaculate Conception School in Secaucus, New Jersey, had the first organ lesson she had requested of Sister Janice." It was not just a musical skill that she taught, she taught me how to worship God through music, to worship prayerfully, and to give generously to others what we have received."
Marie McFadden, SSND
Marie joined two School Sisters of Notre Dame from the Dallas Province in answering a call to teach at Catholic English schools in Lahore, Pakistan. Initially their time was spent discerning their call, learning the Urdu language and Pakistani culture, as well as the Islamic character of the society, before moving into the experience of teaching in the schools.
