Dear Servites,

Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Sister Mary Celeste Lawler,OSM, who celebrated her 100th birthday in 2013.

Sr. Mary Celeste Lawler, O.S.M., died Monday, January 6th a little before 8:30 p.m. Sr. Mary Gehringer reports that her breathing was becoming labored and Sr. Karen contacted them to come be with her. Quite a few of the sisters were praying the rosary in her room when she quietly stopped breathing. She had been in a great deal of pain so it was a blessing that her death was so peaceful. The Sisters thank all for the many prayers for Sister Celeste.

May the Lord grant Sister Celeste eternal rest. May the Mother of Sorrows intercede for Her Servant and all in her family.

Please send your prayers and condolences to Sister Mary Gehringer,OSM, Provincial:

Fr. Vidal Martínez,OSM
OSSM National Assistant
