Light and love to Sr. Ethel and her family at this time. May she find the comfort and rest she deserves and needs with her family in Dublin. Sending her all our strength and prayers. God speed.
In our shared love and admiration for Sister Ethel and with heartfelt gratitude for all she has done for so many, it is with great sadness that we share the news that Sister Ethel was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Not one to ever draw attention to herself, she has opted to receive palliative care near her family and as such is quietly traveling to Dublin.
It is now up to us to continue her legacy and, being the visionary she is, she has prepared us well for it. We will take our guidance from her values of gratitude, accountability, compassion and unconditional love. It is her biggest concern that the care for those who are most vulnerable will continue and we are fully committed to ensuring that Sister Ethel’s good work will continue to live on for many years to come.
