"What a great Fair! Thank you for sending the photos and all the Alum for making this a perfect event. I know many hours of work, behind the scenes and on the day itself made it a success. Thank you one and all.
Sister Rose is still convalescing. She gets up twice a day to walk about 12 steps but does not have a lot of energy. Miriam Xavier is great with a sharp mind in tact. Ann CArol has just returned to the Center from Monrovia, Corinne is still serene and loving.
Love and prayers

"I am so sorry to bring you the sad news about our beloved Sister (Rose Eileen) Agnes McKeirnan's passing. Sister passed away peacefully to her Heavenly Father at about 1.30 p.m. today, September 5, 2011.
Sister would be 102 on October 1, 2011. Sister Agnes was not sick but since the beginning of July this year, Sister became weaker and weaker physically and needed oxygen to breathe. Today, her breathing became shallower and shallower. At last, her breathing stopped and she went back to God peacefully. Let us pray for the repose of her soul.
Last week, some former students from both MSS and MCS visited Sister and Cynthia Pon (MCS 1978) came all the way from Washington, DC to be with Sister for the whole weekend -- day and night Cynthia was at Sister's bedside.
Arrangements for Wake and Funeral are pending.
In memory of Sister Agnes, if you wish you might want to send a check payable to Maryknoll Sisters in lieu of flowers. If so, please address the envelope to Sister Teresa Leung, Alumnae Office, Maryknoll Sisters Center, P.O. Box 311, Maryknoll, NY 10545-0311. And I shall email you to thank you immediately. Or you may wish to donate on our web site: www.maryknollsisters.org.
Let us pray for one another at this period of grief and sorrow for losing our beloved Sister Agnes.
