Sister Barbara GouldSister Barbara Gould

60-year Jubilarian

Entered: August 30, 1959 – Madison, Connecticut

Current Ministry: Educational Consultant  

Motto: Caritas (Love)


During my years as a Sister of Mercy, I have been blessed with supportive friends and family members. Throughout my religious life, the Sisters of Mercy have challenged me to become the best educator I could become. These challenges afforded me the opportunity to travel to China as a member of the Children’s Literature Citizen Ambassador Program and a presenter at the Beijing University. I have taught and supervised student teachers at Boston College, Boston University, UMass Boston and Endicott College.

As an educational consultant for two textbook companies, I met many of my future Northeast Community sisters as I traveled the Northeast. Presently I reside in Florida with my sister, a Sister of Mercy, with whom I have fun cooking and line dancing, but travel back each month to work in the Norwich, Connecticut, diocese. When possible, I join my teammates at Catapult Learning, an instructional services and professional development organization, on an Operation Vitality project for the Archdiocese of Miami. Life as a Sister of Mercy is life-giving, blessed and full of grace-filled surprises!
