Former Prioress of the Rosary Monastery, St Ann’s, Sr Mary Gabriel Quesnel OP has died. She was 84 years old.
Her sudden passing after 4 a.m. last Wednesday was a shock for the nuns of the monastery since she had not been ailing. Current Prioress, Sr Ann Bradshaw OP said Sr Mary entered the monastery at the age of 17 years.
“Her contribution was immense. She was prioress for a number of years. She was one person who gave her all to the community. She loved her sisters,” said Sr Ann. In October 2008, Sr Mary celebrated her diamond jubilee as a religious. Her funeral Mass will be held at the monastery's chapel on Monday from 10 a.m
