Rest in Peace, Sr. Mary Sybillina


Our oldest sister and last foundress, Sister Mary Sybillina of the Crucifixion, O.P., died yesterday afternoon at about 5 PM. Sister was 93 years old. She had been a member of our Lufkin monastery for 75 years. Sister entered the Monastery of the Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, MI (now relocated to Farmington Hills, MI) and two weeks later left that monastery to come to settle a new foundation here in Lufkin. We hope to post more about Sister in the next few days. Due to COVID-19, the funeral will be private.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her. Amen.
