A ritual celebration will be held to remember the life of Sister Mary Elizabeth Johnson, who passed away on Thursday, May 8, not long after her 90th birthday.

Prof. Miriam Therese Winter issued this invitation:

“Please join me on June 28th, 2:00 pm, on the deck of the Women’s Center at 76 Sherman Street for a ritual celebration in remembrance of Mary Elizabeth Johnson, a Medical Mission Sister with whom I shared a mission and ministries for more than 46 years. Refreshments will follow.”

ME, as she was known to many, had a Master’s in Religious Studies from the seminary and worked on the administrative staff for many years. The Medical Mission Sister spent 17 years of her career serving hospitals in Pakistan.

For more about ME’s life, see this biography on the Medical Mission Sisters website.
