Sister Marie Therese Poliquin turns 90

On Sunday, November 22, forty-four friends and family members joined the Sisters to celebrate Sister Marie Therese’s 90th birthday. After Sunday Eucharist, all enjoyed a feast in the Monastery dining room.  Mary MacGillivray, her ‘Friend Across Campus’ in graduate studies at The College of St. Scholastica, played traditional Scottish music on her violin.

May the Lord bless Sister Marie Therese abundantly, and may she be granted many more years to lighten our hearts with her wit, wisdom and radiant smile.

  1. Dear Sister Marie Therese: I went to Blessed Sacrament in Elizabeth . You were my teacher for 7th and 8 th grade .. I learned more in two years than I did in my entire life . At the time we were so afraid to disappoint you .

    I would’ve remiss if I didn’t have the chance to thank you from my heart . We learned to sing in choir and had the greats Math ,English Geography, and History . God Bless and thank you for everything 👼👼✝️
