With great sadness, Sister Celine's biological and SNJM sisters received an update from the doctors that the pneumonia that had struck Sister Celine so suddenly had caused irreparable damage to Sister's heart and brain.
At 3:00 on Tuesday, December 19, Sisters gathered in Celine's room. We prayed and sang, and her dear friend, Father Stan Mulnar anointed her - as did each of us.
Following Celine's wishes, life-sustaining measures were suspended. She is receiving pain medication, and her SNJM Sisters remain by her side as we wait for God to call her home.
