Royal City sister celebrates her golden jubilee

Vocation transports her overseas for decades of missionary work in the Land of the Rising Sun
Sister Michalec shops for fresh produce in Tokyo. She was sent to Japan in 1966
and became fluent in Japanese to teach high school and university students about the
environment. She learns alongside her students "to love our earth with all its mystery,
and history." Special to The B.C. Catholic.

Alistair Burns has a story about a sister from New Westminster who works for God in Japan:
Sister Jean Mary Michalec, MM, has spent decades in Japan preaching the Good News. Born in New Westminster, she celebrated a half-century as a Maryknoll Sister of St. Dominic June 17.

To "put it in a nutshell, I originally wanted to be a missionary," she said in a telephone interview from Japan. "Instead, I went to become a sister."
