Sister Agnes Mary Mueller, MICM celebrated 25 years as a professed Slave of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on December 8, 2016.
Sister serves as the Novice Mistress and teaches in the elementary school. She has taught first grade for 25 years and fourth grade for the last three. Her first graders, many now grown and with children of their own, remember her First Communion classes as some of the happiest memories of their lives. Twenty-one of her nieces and nephews were among her students. By no means ready to retire, Sister also keeps the monastery gift shop stocked and oversees the convent chicken coop along with teaching.
The jubilee was celebrated with a cake on the feast day and by a formal luncheon with friends and family a few days later. Ad multos annos, Sister Agnes Mary!
