“No eye has seen, no ear heard, no human heart imagined what has been prepared for those who love God.” - 1 Corinthians 2:9

Jubilarian 2018 – 70 Years a Sister

God has a long time plan for the eye, for the ear, and for me. Part of the plan was set in motion by moving the eye, ear, and heart to the East side of the state to Fulton Street in Grand Rapids, Michigan where the itinerant Dominican women’s Motherhouse, Marywood was located.

There the plan continued – moving me into the ministry of educating youth in Saginaw (Sts. Peter and Paul), Grand Rapids (St. Thomas), Chesaning (Our Lady), Gaylord (Our Lady), Bay City (St. Joseph), and Mt. Pleasant (Sacred Heart Academy).

So, in this my 70th year of serving God’s people, my eye, ear, and heart join with other eyes, ears, and hearts in thankful praise to our Good and Gracious God.

Deo Gratias!
Amen, Alleluia
