It is with great fondness that the IJ Sisters remember Sr. Deidre O’Loan. The well-loved educator truly embodied the CHIJ motto of being “Simple in Virtue, Steadfast in Duty”, and worked tirelessly for others throughout her life.

In her capacity as Teacher, Principal, Sister, Animator and Supervisor through her life, Sr. Deirdre treated each person she encountered with dignity, warmth, and compassion. She gave her life to nurturing and educating children, and her positive outlook, unfailing cheerfulness, and gentle kindness was uplifting to students, staff, and anyone else who encountered her alike. Sr. Deirdre served with great humility and love, bringing out the best in others and making a difference in a great many lives.

Come and be united with Sr. Deirdre in prayer and love. Should you not be able to join the mass at 9am, please do so at your own convenience as it is uploaded on YouTube.
