From The Principal – Farewell Sister Marg
Sister Marg commenced in our Boarding Community in 2001 as a Housemother in Ursula House caring for our boarders, before becoming a pastoral assistant in the College community providing support for staff, students, and families. Sister Marg has shared many stories, laughter and wise words with our staff and students during her 17 years at the College.
Sister Marg was born in Perth, the third of four children and attended St Joachim’s, now called Ursula Frayne College. From her first day of school as a six-year-old seeing the nuns, she dreamed of becoming a nun. Sister Marg joined the convent at Mercedes College at 16 years of age and was professed as a Sister of Mercy at age 19. She has dedicated over 60 years of her life as a Sister of Mercy. In Sister Marg’s words “She has always been grateful for the life she’s had and the vocation she chose”.
Sister Marg’s presence at the College has been a gift to the College community, and her contributions are valued by many. We wish Sister Marg well and hope she enjoys time to relax and as Catherine McAuley would say, time to enjoy “a good cup of tea”.
