“Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with you…”

 

S-Mary-EglmeierBorn in Nurnberg, Bavaria on November 24, 1902, Sister Mary entered religious life at Mount St. Scholastica Convent in Atchison, Kansas in 1923 and made religious profession in January 1, 1925.

 

In 1965 Sister Mary transferred her vows to Benet Hill Monastery to become a charter member of the Colorado Springs Community. She dedicated many years assisting her sisters in convents of Benedictine-staffed schools in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. She also worked in homemaking duties at the Monastery.

 

Her life was graced with trusting prayer and deep faith, and her gentle presence brought joy to those whose lives she touched. Let us remember her gratefully in our prayers.
