Sister Doreen Glynn, pastoral administrator of St. Mary of the Lake Parish in Ontario, recently celebrated her 50th jubilee.
Sister Glynn grew up in St. Patrick’s Parish in Syracuse. She entered the congregation of Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in Troy, N.Y., in 1955. For the first few years of her religious life, Sister Glynn taught at schools in the Albany area. In 1966 she began teaching in the Syracuse Diocese and then served in its religious-education office.
Sister Glynn served as regional superior and province counselor for her congregation in the early 1980s, and in 1987 became novice director of the order’s novitiate in Denver, Colo. After five years there she began working in her congregation’s mission parishes in Peru. In 2001, she became pastoral associate at Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Brockport, and in 2003 she became pastoral administrator of St. Mary of the Lake Parish.
“These past 50 years have been rich in many experiences of God’s presence in many places and people,” she said.
