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!

Sister Gail Marie taught at schools in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois. She also served at the Generalate in Rome, for the Archdiocesan Office in Chicago and elsewhere. Sister Gail acted with great attention to detail and a love for service and family. May she rest in the arms of God.
For 17 years, S Christina taught primary grades in New York, and Connecticut. A parent wrote of her " “Sister Christina was never too busy to embrace a child, dry a tear, or answer a question. She imbued in our little ones a love for learning and a respect for the thoughts and feelings of others." S Chrisina was also an entertainer and was an excellent ventriloquist!
