Dear Servites,


Please pray for the repose of the soul of Shirley Streitz,OSSM, Mary Mother of Compassion Community, Spooner, Wisconsin.  Sister Dominica,OSM, Spiritual Assistant, writes: 


I write to give you the sad news of the death of one the Secular 
Servites from our Spooner community.  Shirley Streitz  died last evening in her home after a battle with lung cancer for several years.  She had not been able to come to our meetings or gatherings for a long time, but wanted to be very much connected.  We visited her, prayed with her and 
brought her Holy Communion every week.  She loved being a Secular Servite and was so proud of it.  I believe Mary came to take her "Home".  Eternal rest give unto her, O Lord!


May Mary, Our Lady of Sorrows, Mother of Compassion intercede for Shirley's family and friends at this time of sorrow and loss.


Please send your prayers and condolences to Jan Masterjohn,OSSM, Prioress:


Fr. Vidal Martínez,OSM
