School Sisters of Notre Dame note milestones with Mass at cathedral

The School Sisters of Notre Dame, an international congregation of more than 2,500 women religious in 32 countries on five continents, is celebrating 185 years of faithful service since its foundation in 1833.

In Rochester, this occasion will be marked with a special liturgy celebrated by Bishop Salvatore R. Matano Oct. 28 at 1:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 296 Flower City Park, Rochester. All are welcome to join the School Sisters of Notre Dame and their associates in giving thanks for almost 165 years of service to the people of the Diocese of Rochester.

Today, eight School Sisters of Notre Dame serve in the Diocese of Rochester: Sister Sue Czaplicki works with the people of The Most Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Elmira; Sisters Evelyn Breslin and Mary Smith work in Rochester with children and youths at Notre Dame Learning Center; Sister Stephania Walczak is starting her 49th year at Irondequoit’s Bishop Kearney High School; Sisters Mariella and Mary Lou Brien are active in prayer ministry; Sister Edna Cole volunteers as a tutor for Rochester Refugee Resettlement; and Sister Lorraine Burns volunteers at St. Ann’s at Cherry Ridge.
