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...

Sr. Mary Anna JohnstonNationality: Irish
Congregational Register No: 38
D.O.B. 11.12.1900
First Profession: 02.07.1943

Agnes Johnston was a convert to Catholicism when she entered in Rosemount on 15 August 1940.

Her work experience was mainly clerical and in this she gave great service to the hospital in Drogheda, as secretary to Mother Mary, and also in Nigeria, mainly in Anua and Ogoja.

After returning to Ireland from Nigeria in 1949, she was in charge of the communications office and later the accounts department in the maternity hospital. She moved from there to the philatelic department, then situated in Bettystown.

In memories of her, time was important to her and quotes of hers may sometimes still be heard: "doing half an hour's reading in 20 minutes" and "getting in the mid-day examination of conscience" if the priest was late beginning morning Mass!

Sr. Mary Anna died in Drogheda in 1976 and is buried there in the MMM plot.
