In this section of our website, you will find a short entry about the life of each of our Sisters who has been called by God to embark on her eternal life. No doubt you will find inspiration in reading how each one responded to her calling while on earth. We pray to them to help us on our journey.

If you knew one or more of these Sisters personally, or are connected through family ties, or simply like what you read, please contact us and tell us what you would like to add to that entry.

"The death of those can never leave us free from grief whose friendship during life was a solace and delight." Saint Augustine, City of God.

When Loved Ones Leave Us...

Margaret, from Dundalk, entered on 9 April 1961. Her sister Anna had entered MMM in 1940 but left four years later of her own accord.

A qualified pharmacist, Sr. Moninna gave thirty-five years of service in Kabanga, Tanzania. One of our sister-doctors wrote:

"She is one who did much for my sanity in my first mission, Kabanga, helping me keep things in perspective, seeing the funny side of unusual situations and helping me out with her resourcefulness and unbelievable memory when I was stuck in pharmaceutical crises!"

What more needs to be said!

It was with sadness that she retired to Ireland in 1996, where her gentle, unassuming presence was much appreciated by her community in Drogheda.

Her sense of humour was so characteristic of her. From her youth, she had been very short-sighted. She told the story how one day, without her spectacles, she found herself lining up to go for a swim, as she thought. To her horror, she discovered that she had joined a line of 'bathing beauties' in a local beauty contest!

Sr. Moninna died and is buried in Drogheda.
