After gratitude for her Dominican vocation, Sister Marie Benedict O’Toole treasured most her long career of teaching small children.

In January 2003 Sister Marie Benedict was inducted into the Saginaw Catholic Schools Hall of Fame in honor of her contributions to Catholic Education over the years. At the time she wrote: “My life as a Grand Rapids Dominican has been one of joy, life-giving, and full of challenges. There were times when I felt there were not enough hours in a day to do all that I needed to do. I have enjoyed each mission where I have served, the Sisters I lived with, the children, and the parents I worked with. Lots of changes have taken place in education and in community living throughout the years, but with prayer and the support of each other, we saw that everything worked out for the best.”
