Sister Nora transitioned in her ministry from elementary education to social work with children, teens and later, the elderly. She brought the compassion of St. Marguerite to whomever she met whether finding safe homes for children in the foster care system, or supervising case managers for at-risk seniors.
"I tried to stay true to Marguerite's legacy of spreading the Good News of God's compassionate love by offering protection and assistance to those whose lives lacked stability."
Thank you Sister Nora Friel for all you have done to Create a More Compassionate World!
