Farewell Celebration for Sister Cathy Bleiler

Written on: March 25, 2015

On January 25th in Williamsville, NY a celebration was held at St. Gregory the Great Parish. A Mass, followed by a reception, was held to honor Sister Cathy Bleiler.  Most of the teachers, teacher assistants and former teachers came to the event. Seven in the picture have been on the staff for 25 years or longer!  Sister Cathy told us, “I was humbled and honored by the tribute. The pastor and all 3 associates concelebrated the Mass. The reception was very well attended but so many families sent their regrets due to previous commitments. I am still receiving mail from a lot of former families.

On a sad but poignant note: one of my very close friends who taught there for 38 years died that week and I was moved that her mom came to the Mass and reception.”

Sister Cathy, we hope you feel as warmly welcomed to Yardley and GNA!


Sister Cathy is currently serving as a Consultant to the Interim Principal at Grey Nun Academy, the preeminent private, Catholic elementary school in Bucks County Pennsylvania.
