In Loving Memory of our dear Sr Jeanne

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Sr Jeanne Houlihan MM at 7pm, 26 March New York time ( 7am 27 March HK time ). Sr Jeanne, aged 93, died peacefully at the Maryknoll Sisters Centre in New York. 

Sr Jeanne taught at Maryknoll Convent School (Secondary Section) from 1955 to 1971, and served as Principal cum Supervisor between 1972 and 1986, touching the hearts of many generations of Maryknollers. She continued to serve as Supervisor of the Secondary Section from 1987 to 1991 and from 2005 to 2011, and as Supervisor of the Primary Section from 1988 to 1991. Sr Jeanne also served as a Trustee on the MCS Educational Trust. Sister returned to the Maryknoll Sisters Center in 1991 and was appointed Director of the Development Department where she continued to share her leadership skills. In 2002, she came back to Hong Kong and worked as a volunteer teacher at Maryknoll Convent School. Sister Jeanne was the first Chairperson of the Maryknoll Convent School Foundation and was later appointed the Foundation’s Honorary Advisor, a position she held until her passing.

Our adored teacher and Principal, Sr Jeanne, had profoundly influenced the lives of numerous generations of Maryknollers through her affectionate presence. Her guidance and wisdom had propelled our school ahead of her times. 

As we bid farewell to our dear Sister Jeanne, we shall remember her selfless service, unwavering faith, and dedication to education. Her life serves as a reminder that the impact of a single individual can transcend time and continue to inspire for generations to come for our beloved School.

May her soul find eternal peace in the loving embrace of our Heavenly Father.
