Sister Ellen Mary Lopez

“My being proclaims the greatness of God.” - Luke 1:46

Mi alma proclama la grandeza del Señor. - Lucas 1:46

I thank God for my gift of parents Socorro Barron Lopez and Alejo Lopez, originally from Mexico. I had 7 sisters and 1 brother, Cleofas, Dionicia, Phyllis, Adella, Isabel, Rosie, Joe, and Alice. I was born in Seguin, Texas. But before I was school age, we moved to Saginaw, Michigan.

My life has been filled with blessings. It has been a delight to serve God’s people in both the Spanish and English communities through many pastoral, religious education, and hospital ministries.

May God bless all those who have touched my life with His Presence.

Liaisons between the public school and the migrant youth are so important. They often need the moral support and encouragement to finish high school.
