HAPPY JUBILEE FRIDAY TO S. Margaret M. Lynch (S. Marie Vinette) who has been a Dominican Sister of Amityville for 60 years! WOW!
Like riding a spiritual stream, S. Margaret has followed the Holy Spirit wherever it led her.
Whether it was teaching high school at St. Barbara/ Bishop McDonnell in Brooklyn or working as a social worker or as a Spiritual Care Counselor with the Visiting Nurse Services of NY. "One thing flowed from the other very logically," she said. It was like God gave her a piece of the puzzle with each job, and eventually those pieces fit together.
Of her hospice work, she said, "Visits to patients were both challenging and rewarding. It enabled me to use my experiences as an educator, a social worker and as a Religious in being of help and comfort to patients and families." Although she retired in 2015, she still volunteers in an educational program for Women run by the School Sisters of Notre Dame. Her advice: "Try to live the Gospel through your ministry. Be open to change. Trust in God."
