In an interview a few years ago, Mary Lou Rathers said that she became an associate because she desired to “deepen her spiritual life by actively living our mission of unity of neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God.” She has been doing just that, and sharing her many gifts and talents, since becoming an associate in 2002. Mary Lou began the SSJ prayer shawl ministry and has volunteered at Saint Mary’s at Asbury, St. Patrick’s Haven and the Thanksgiving Dinner. She belongs to the Christian Mediation group.
We wish our best to Mary Lou and her husband, Mike, as they become full-time residents of Florida. We will miss having her here, but we know she will continue reaching out to the “ dear neighbor” wherever she is.
We are blessed to have Mary Lou as an associate.
