Sister Margaret Merritt OP
The parishioners of St. Michael- St. Malachy are saddened to hear of the passing of Sister Margarret Merritt OP on August 16, 2016. Sister Peggie as we knew her was not only a religious sister but a big part of the St. Michael- St. Malachy community.
Sister Peggie was a Sister of the Order of St. Dominic of Amityville, her life of dedication to ministry to the Gospel provided religious and academic experiences that were life giving and memoriable. She was the principal of St. Michael/St. John Newmann for 32 years, and knew eack of her students and parents.
Sister Peggie belonged to the Christian Mothers Society of our Parish as well as being Eucharist Minister and Lector. Sister Peggie has touched so many lives here at St. Michael's that everyone has a very fong memory of her to share.
A Memorial Mass will be celebrated for Sister Peggie Merritt at St. Michael- St. Malachy Church on Saturday, August 27, 2016 at 11AM. Light refreshments will be served in the Church Hall (next to the church) after the Mass.
The parish community is very grateful for the years of service and leadership that Sister Peggie had provided for all her students, teachers, parents and everyone that knew her, especially us here at St. Micahel-St. Malachy Parish. She will be dearly missed. May she rest in peace!
