Sister Carol Haggarty, Rest in Peace

Carol Haggarty, RSCJ, a member of the Academy’s Board of Trustees from 2005–2011, was called home on Sunday, June 18, succumbing in her valiant struggle with cancer. Sister Clare Pratt wrote: “God called Carol home on this Feast of Corpus Christi. Let us thank God for her wonderful faithful life, for her devoted family and friends and for the gentle way our loving God brought her home.”

Prayer for Carol

In your hands, O Lord,
we humbly entrust our sister Carol.
In this life you embraced her with your tender love;
deliver her now from every evil
and bid her eternal rest.

The old order has passed away:
welcome her into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain,
but fullness of peace and joy
with your Son and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.
Amen.
