Age 88

Sister Faith’s motto was “I have come to serve, not to reign,” and this was evident in her many years of service. She began her teaching ministry working in schools in the Providence Diocese (Rhode Island), including a position as librarian at St. Mary’s, Bay View. In 1964, Sister Faith transferred to Bishop Feehan High School in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Thus began a longstanding, loving relationship with the Feehan community, first as teacher and librarian, then as Feehan’s principal. She served in that capacity for 18 years.

Sister Faith will be remembered as a woman of deep faith with an abiding love for her students and those with whom she ministered. She had a gift for quiet, consistent and strong leadership at Feehan. She then exhibited these same gifts at St. Mary’s, Bay View, from 1992 to 2006 as vice-principal.

Her sense of humor, the twinkle in her eyes, her courage in adversity, her love of life—these are the memories her friends and companions in Mercy will cherish in their hearts.
