Entered: September 7, 1961
Current Ministry: Spiritual Direction
Motto: Cry the Gospel with your life

1949: Sister Mary Alphonsus’ First Grade classroom. A desire bubbling up: “That’s what I want!” — a moment as real to me today as it was then. I look back on 60 years of Mercy life and ministry and feel so grateful to God for journeying with me, grateful for the people encountered in ministry, and grateful for you, dear Sisters and Associates, who have shared your wisdom, spirituality, vision, and good humor across all these years. Shakespeare said it best: “I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever thanks.”
