After nine years of leadership as superior at St. Catherine’s Convent and Health Care Center, Sister Jane Marie Smith completes her tenure this month. On June 15 the Sisters celebrated her forthcoming retirement with a festive meal, accompanied by many warm wishes of thanks and promised prayers, while recalling some joyful memories of past occasions.
Before coming to St. Catherine’s, Sister Jane Marie was an expert teacher for many years at St. John’s School in Clark. Upon coming back to Caldwell, her teaching ministry seemed to continue through her kindness and concern for residents and visitors alike. Sister will soon move to Sacred Heart Convent and hopefully enjoy some well-deserved “r&r” and a change of pace.
