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...

Nationality: Irish
Congregational Register No: 700

First Profession: 03.10.1966

From Tulsk, Co. Roscommon, and with a sister, Mary (then Canisius) Jones, already a MMM, Christine entered MMM on 3 April 1964 as a fully qualified doctor and anaesthetist. She worked for several years in the IMTH as medical superintendent. Mother Mary had great confidence in her.

Later, Christine was assigned to Nigeria, working in Anua and Eleta.

She was a free spirit. Her experiences before entering seemed to have given her a balance and maturity which became even more evident during her time in Africa. She was appreciative of the smallest kindness and had a wholesome sense of humour that she never lost, in spite of the ill health she suffered during her later years.

She died unexpectedly while on home leave from Ibadan and was deeply missed by her family, and her community and staff in Eleta. In Drogheda, many people still speak very highly of Christine, remembering her from her years at the hospital.

Sr. Christine is buried in Drogheda.
