Sister Mary O'ConneII

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Sister Mary O'ConneII RSM, age 84, a member of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas; who died peacefully on Monday, July 5, 2021.

Sister Mary O'ConneII's life-long love of Elementary education Spanning over 50 years encompassed teaching and administration in the diocese of Raleigh NC, Hialeah, FL and the Philadelphia Archdiocese. As principal in schools in the Philadelphia Archdiocese including Annunciation BVM in Havertown, St. Matthias in Bala Cynwyd and St. Alphonsus in Maple Glen her leadership and administration as well as her care and enthusiasm for students, families, and engagement within her parish community were hallmarks of her ministry.

Mary was an ardent "Philly sports fan". She enjoyed gatherings of her friends and family. She had a keen awareness of those she loved and lived life as it presented itself with thoughtfulness and compassion.

A deeply prayerful woman, you could count on Mary to have a prayer for every family and friends gathering.
