Sister James Claret OP you will always be. You were my first introduction into formal education at St Patrick, Joliet and as luck would have it my introduction with the holy Eucharist in 2nd grade. I say formal because my mom was a teacher. you increased the love of knowledge and the sacraments in my life . I still belong to St Patrick parish...and teach RCIA there and RE at another parish....Although I can not thank you personally You have been thanked prayerfully......May the Angels hold and keep you in the glory of the Lord
