    I’m looking to find out if Sister Eugene Mary, who taught 6th grade at Resurrection Ascension school, Rego Park in the 1970’s is still with us. I believe she grew up in elmhurst, NY and her given name was Catherine Birmingham. Thank you for your time.

    Family genealogy search. Julia Elizabeth Sheridan became a Sister of Charity in 1898 taking the name Sister Mary Eugene. She joined the St Mary’s Convent in Elizabeth NJ . She died in Plainfield NJ in Feb 1942. I am searching for her photo.

    Her sibling Elizabeth Eleanor Sheridan also entered the same convent the same day. Her name became Sister Mary Elizabeth. Both ere teaching nuns. She also died in Plainfield NJ in Jan 1934. Also seeking info and photo of her.

    I am extremely proud of these women and while I did not join the convent I did follow their example into teaching. Sunshine and smiles, Barb

      The Sisters you mention would be members of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth in Convent Station, NJ. Photos were rarely taken of Sisters that were not in leadership. The average Sister was not permitted to be photographed.

    I am so happy to see her posted here, We became good friends when I studied at SLU 1982 – 84, we kept in touch all these years, she was an avid letter writer, remembering important dates in my life and in my family. The Last time I heard from her she mentioned about coming to Guatemala for mission work. I would love to re connect with her.

    Hello Sister, you were my teacher in the 7th grade at Blessed Sacrament. An initial assignment from you was a composition, the subject of which is long forgotten. I recall receiving my essay, graded with what I thought was “sad” scribbled as a commentary on my effort. Ha ha. Also a memorable day was when an very elderly nun (Sr. Agnes ?) who ran the supply room downstairs, came into the classroom and interrupted what had been a long and somewhat dull day, very warm and stifling. Delighted with the interruption by this beloved Sr, the whole class burst into spontaneous hurrahs. This moved you to tears. I never forgot that moment. Of all the teachers I have had all the way through college, You were one of my most memorable and influential. You made us think and expanded our world view. You also introduced the class to halvah ! All best regards, SAD. Margaret Ellison (BSS class of 1969)

    Sister Anne Denise was my professor at College of Mount Saint Vincent. Her class was tough and she had high expectations from her students. She made me want to work harder. After class she was always giving me and my twin sister guidance, both academic and personal. She had a huge impact on my life in college and I think of her often.
