After more than fifty-years of living at St. Peters, serving as principle of St. Peter School, and in retirement, serving as a Lector and Eucharistic minister, visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and the shut-ins of our parish, Sr. Mary Angelus, RSM, has moved to Mount St. Rita’s Health Center in Cumberland, Rhode Island.
Mount St. Rita’s is the provincial head quarters for the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, and also serves as the health care facility for the elderly sisters of the community. Sr. Mary Angelus will receive the care and support that she needs at this point in her life.
Sr. Mary Angelus will be missed by all of us, as she has been a faithful presence and witness to the love of God for our parish family. There are not adequate words to express my profound appreciation for the gift she has been for our parish and school. I first met Sister Angelus when I was in the seventh grade at St. Matthew’s School in Cranston. Little could I have imagined at that time, where God’s Providence would lead us in the future.
I assured sister that she would not be forgotten in our prayers, and asked for her prayers, as she begins the next journey of her life. I will soon publish her address, when she gets settled, so that you will be able to keep in touch with her. You are always welcome to visit her.
May God continue to bless Sr. Angelus with good health and many more years as a religious. May God continue to bless our efforts to provide Catholic Education for our children, and continue the legacy of Sr. Angelus, who loved the children, and families of our parish for so many years.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Rev. Roger C. Gagne
