Sister Esther (Amelia) CharpentierSister Amelia Charpentier

70-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1949 – Cumberland, Rhode Island

Current Ministry: Ministry of Prayer and Presence

Motto: In His will is my peace


Reflecting on 70 years as a Sister of Mercy, I am grateful for the people through whom God's love is revealed to me. I am especially thankful for 28 years of ministry in Belize as a teacher, mentor to young teachers, and outreach worker. While there I witnessed the truth that peace and happiness do not depend on material goods. Residing now at Mount St. Rita Health Centre, I vow every morning to spend each day in a way that is a beautiful reflection of Mercy, freely given and solidly lived.
