Sister Angela O’Callaghan, of Newport, went peacefully to God at St. Clare Home, Newport, RI, on January 3, 2019. She was born Bridget O’Callaghan on August 7, 1931 in Loughfouder, Knocknagoshel, Co. Kerry, Ireland and is predeceased by her parents, Patrick and Mary O’Callaghan and her siblings, Nora, Jerry, Jimmy, and Mary. She attended primary school locally in Loughfouder and went to the Cluny Sisters’ Mount Sackville Boarding School in Dublin. She entered religious life with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny and pronounced her vows on March 8, 1951 in Gallen Priory, Febane Offaly.

Missioned to USA, she ministered in SS Peter & Paul School, Wilmington, CA, St. Catherine Laboure School, Torrance, CA. and Cluny School, Newport, RI.  She also ministered in outreach to the elderly in Providence, RI.  In 2007, she began a ministry of presence and prayer in residence at St. Clare - Newport.

Sister Angela is survived by her sister-in-law, Frances and many nephews and nieces.  She will be missed by family, friends, and many Cluny Sisters around the world. We are grateful to the staff of St. Clare Home for their loving care.

Visitation will be on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 10:00am, St. Augustin Church, Carroll Avenue, Newport followed by 11:00am Mass of Resurrection. Burial St. Columba Cemetery, 465 Brown’s Lane, Middletown.

Our Spirit in Action
Cluny Associate, Millicent Borgarding,   joins in our mission to
                         Go out to all the world and
                         announce the Good  News. 
                                      (Matt 28).
                      Here's her story.

As an Associate, I want, like Blessed Anne Marie to “do a little bit of good.” One way I do this is as a volunteer panelist in the Neighborhood Justice Program of Los Angeles. 
         First-time offenders who have committed a misdemeanor have an opportunity to avoid going through the criminal justice system.
         This program provides opportunities for individuals to succeed without suffering the negative consequences of having a criminal charge levied against them. It also aims at restoring and healing the relationships harmed through the wrongdoer’s actions.
         Every participant I have encountered has been truly grateful for the program and the process. Each has left the panel session with the positive ‘I- am- going-to-make-this-program-work’ attitude.
