  1. Sr. Mary Joseph McCarthy was a wonderful person and a wonderful sister. She prepared so many of the children of St. William the Abbot for their first communion, including mine. She prepared the parents for the PEP I program. I really appreciated everything she did for my children and for me. She was kind and caring toward me and it was a privilege to know her. I will miss her. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord.
