Sister Barbara Connolly- 60th Jubilee

Written on: April 7, 2017

Sister Barbara Connolly (Sister Mary Luke) was raised in Jackson Heights, New York, and has spent much of her religious life there. Her earliest years in religious life were in elementary education ministry in various schools in Atlanta, Buffalo and Philadelphia. Barbara, a social worker for many years, has worked in several agencies but as Coordinator for Mental Health at Hour Children, she found her niche. Her work of uniting children with their mothers, both in prison and on their return to society, was extremely fulfilling for her. New York is in her DNA, so she continues to life there in her retirement years.

My life as a Grey Nun of the Sacred Heart has held many blessings. I look forward to this celebration and look forward to giving thanks for all the support I received from my community during these changing years. Though my years as a Grey Nun, I have had a variety of experiences in my ministries that have helped me in community life and prayer life. These experiences have contributed to the blessings and love I have for all my sisters of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart as well as Associates and friends I have made over these 60 years. I am grateful…
