In Memoriam

Downtown Eastside sister dead at 89
About 150 people gathered in St. Paul's Church to celebrate the life of Sister Elizabeth Kelliher, SA.  Sister Marianne Rohrer, SA, shared her memories of the late nun, who worked tirelessly in the Downtown Eastside. "She used the gift of her voice to speak against the deplorable conditions in which the homeless live," Sister Rohrer said. For more photos see The B.C. Catholic website.

She related the story in an interview with the Prairie Messenger. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
