Sister Frances LynchSister Frances Lynch

75-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1944 – Cumberland, Rhode Island

Current Ministry: Mercy Mission education

I’ve had a tremendous life in Mercy because I’ve been able to serve in so many different ways: in education and community leadership in Rhode Island, and in helping to start an Appalachian ministry where sisters lived in coal towns and went out to teach and provide health care. After visiting Ireland with Sister Barbara Riley, I became passionate about our founder Catherine McAuley and Mercy in new ways. Barbara and I started leading workshops on Catherine for sisters and employees at sponsored ministries. When I reflect, at age 93, on my life as a Sister of Mercy, I am humbled by its riches.
