Maryknoll Sister Teresita Perez celebrates her 50th Golden Jubilee

Maryknoll Sister Teresita Perez celebrates her 50th Golden Jubilee

Maryknoll Sister Teresita Perez, who taught at Miriam College, celebrates her 50th Golden Jubilee this year. She entered the Maryknoll Sisters Congregation from the Archdiocese of Manila in 1967 and was assigned to Peru two years later.

After 24 years as a missioner in Peru, Sister Teresita was assigned to the Philippines in 1993, where she shared the richness of her mission experiences as well as learned about all that had changed in her absence. At Miriam College (formerly Maryknoll College), she taught Theology and Spanish and organized the Campus Ministry Office of the Higher Education Unit, then serving 2,200 students.

Presently, she resides at the Maryknoll Sisters Center in Ossining, New York where she remains an active volunteer for the local community.  She volunteers as a bi-lingual interpreter at Brookside Elementary School and at Maryknoll Neighbors Link (a local immigration program). She also volunteers at the Ossining Library in their “Reading Buddies Program” to help people who need to improve their reading skills.
