Our 2020 Jubilarians

Written on: May 11, 2020

The Jubilee Celebration theme for this year is “Every day I marvel at Divine Providence…it provides for everything. St. Marguerite d’Youville”  We are pleased to announce the names of our Sisters who celebrate 70 and 60 years as Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart in 2020. We rejoice with, congratulate and thank the following 11 Sisters for their combined 700 Years of dedicated service:

70 Years

Sister Anne Boyer (Mary Mark)

“…a special grace in my life was to find that I was happy at whatever I was called to do and wherever I was sent.”

“Many of the areas in which I served have enriched my life with opportunities for growth and lifelong friendships.”

Sister Kathryn Healy (Catherine Marie)

“I have deep gratitude for all my years as a Grey Nun. God has blessed me with great friends and abundant blessings.”

60 Years

“One special thing that has continually enriched my life is the gift of music. Whether during liturgical celebrations with the Medical Mission Sisters, or in quiet times, a song will always lift my spirits.”

“Walking the road in the spirit of St. Marguerite has been full of challenges, blessings, learnings and love. God has walked with me and shown me the way and continues to be present with me every day.”

“I look forward to celebrating these sixty years as a Grey Nun of the Sacred Heart. It has always been a blessing to share life and stories with others. I give thanks to our Lord who has always been a presence in my life and who walks with me daily.”

Sister Martha Moyle (Mary Aloysius)

“My life is a rich tapestry that Divine Providence has skillfully created from my life’s experiences, in bits of varying shades of colors and hues.

Sister Karen Marie Voltz

“…the twenty-eight years as GNSH Mission Co-coordinator expanded my vision and graced me in a way only Divine Providence could design.”
