The only remaining Sister of Charity of Saint-Hyacinthe serving at St. Mary’s, recently retired and moved back to the convent in Saint-Hyacinthe.
“I’m sad to leave, but I know the mission is alive, well and in good hands with the wonderful people at St. Mary’s,” said Sr. Claire on her last day. “The team also beautifully embodies St. Marguerite d’Youville’s expression — ‘we shall continue to love and to serve.’”
“We are grateful for Sr. Claire’s years of service at d’Youville Pavilion, prolonging our p resence in Lewiston and our ministry in the US,” says Sr. Beaudion. “She, like so many other Sisters of Charity of Saint-Hyacinthe,
served with generosity and love, caring for the sick and the elderly for nearly 145 years.”
Thank you to Sr. Claire for her 24 years as a social worker at d’Youville Pavilion and all of the Sisters of Charity of Saint-Hyacinthe for their legacy of healing, love and response to our community’s needs with generosity and grace.
Gifts in honor of Sister Claire are gratefully accepted.
