60-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1959 – Albany, New York

Current Ministry: Advocate for Sisters of Mercy in nursing homes

Motto: In Christ Jesus


During my 60 years as a Sister of Mercy, I have met many wonderful people. Although most of my ministries involved teaching, I can honestly say that I have been the one who has learned so much from the people I have taught and from their families. Some of them have become lifelong friends. Every day of my life, I am grateful to God for giving me family and friends who have loved me and supported me during my journey as a Sister of Mercy. In the words of Catherine, “the tender Mercy of God has given us one another.”
