I first wish to express how grateful I am for the powerful support and loving energies that are truly helping me heal from the stroke I suffered last June after serving 40 years at McAuley House. My early years in Mercy were spent at Pine Harbor in Pascoag. This was a mnistry of being with children and adults who were developmentally challenged. I still remember the love and compassion they offered me there. I also want to honor the memory of Sister Mary Kieran, who initiated my special educational pursuits. So to my Mercy Community and my many friends, I thank you for the beauty and blessings you have given me through these years.
