BEDFORD, N.Y. – St. Patrick’s School is honoring Sister Kathleen Fitzgerald in October for her work touching the spiritual and academic lives of two generations of students.
A special celebration will be held at the school on Sunday, Oct. 25.
Fitzgerald not only celebrates 50 years on the faculty at the school this year, but also her 60th anniversary of entering the convent as a Sister of Charity and her 80th birthday.
“We want to thank Sister Kathleen for her many years of dedication to the service of the children of God and to her religious community,” said Sharyn O’Leary, St. Patrick’s School principal. “She has been a constant presence on the campus for half a decade, educating students in the Catholic faith while modeling for them a life given to God and faith. She is always there for families in need, offering prayer, guidance and support.”
To honor her service to the school, the parish and the community, the celebration will begin with a noon Mass at the church celebrated by the pastor, Msgr. George Thompson at the church, and will conclude with a reception at the school.
In addition, a scholarship to the school will be created in her name. Anyone wishing to contribute to the Sister Kathleen Fitzgerald, S.C., Scholarship fund should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (914)-234-7914.
