Sister Mary shared with us the following on the occasion of her 75th Jubilee in 2017...
"My litany of experiences as a School Sister of Notre Dame can fill volumes - memories of living in Colombia, serving as director of a newly created English department at the Javeriana University and having to classify 5,000 students was a biggy. Imagine a high school teacher taking on that challenge! But when, 'You are sent', you manage! The poverty of more than a hundred displaced victims roaming acres of abandoned desert land outside of Asuncion, Paraguay, paralyzed me. But there was no time to waste! Our team of priests and sisters met the challenge to assist these homeless people."
