It is with much sadness that we announce the passing away of Sr. Jacqueline Delage, CSC. She, ”Jacquie”, left us for her eternal reward on February 12, 2018. She was known to many of you, for she is the one, who, with her faithful friend, Sr. Suzanne Levesque, began the Development Office in 1995.
Jacquie’s great love of Community and of the sisters made her say “yes” to the challenge of establishing a needed office in our Sector. With the opening of the office, she was inspired to begin writing a newsletter as a means of communication. Jacquie began by going to all the areas where the Sisters labored in order to collect the names of all the former students and that meant searching through Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Vermont.
The first edition of Tel-A-Cross was published in the fall of 1995. Sr. Jacquie’s first goal was to reacquaint former students with the Sisters so that, once again, we could be part of their lives and hopefully touch them with Peace, Hope and Love. We quote here from Thoreau’s words found in the first TEL-A-CROSS: “May we be one in mind and heart.“
Jacquie also organized many fund raisers in order to meet the needs of our community as well as to provide occasions where we could all come together. She was the director of the Development Office for ten years. Sadly, failing health forced her to retire. We thank you, Sr. Jacqueline, for all that you did and we ask that from above, you help us continue your legacy in the years to come!
WELL DONE GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT!!!
