Sister of the Day: Sister Cecilia Smith

Sister Cecilia (Damian) Smith   1921-2016

Sister Cecilia’s heritage was a blend of German and Sioux, French and Ojibwa.

Her activities were a blend of teaching and hospitality, kind deeds and prayer.   Her life stitched a pattern that earns a blue ribbon.

This is the 100th Centennial of the Sisters of Saint Benedict of Crookston.  Because of our Centennial year, we are featuring a Sister of the Day every Weekday and memories of buildings and happenings on weekends throughout the entire year.   Take a “Peek Behind the Veil” and watch this space every day during the entire 2019 year!  To see past Sisters of the Day or Peeks Behind the Veil, click here:
