SR. GLORIA MORENO

Sr. Gloria Moreno, OP, entered into eternity at age 88 on February 7, 2013, from Sansbury Care Center (St. Catharine, KY). Her parents Charles and Claudine Moreno, her brother Charles, sister Eleanor Ford, and her twin, Virginia "Virgie" Moreno, pre-deceased her.

Born January 1, 1925, in Tucson, AZ, young Gloria entered the fledgling Eucharistic Missionaries of St. Dominic (EMD) in 1945, two months after the first Mexican-American woman from Arizona crossed similar cultural boundaries. She was Sr. Pascal when she professed her vows in New Orleans on September 8, 1948. She balanced catechetical ministry and studies toward a bachelor's degree in music from Loyola University in New Orleans, LA. Sr. Pascal led the community in Gregorian chant and other liturgical music. She introduced many groups of postulants and novices to chant, teaching them to "always stop at every full bar." Her facility in learning sign language launched her into decades of ministry among the hearing impaired within the Archdiocese of New Orleans and the Diocese of Tucson. Sr. Gloria also participated in several teams of EMD census takers for parishes in the south and west.

Sr. Gloria earned a master's in spirituality from Duquesne University in Pittsburg, PA. A woman devoted to Eucharistic prayer, Sr. Gloria loved studying theology, being in the company of her Sisters, and serving however she was needed. Transplanted to St. Catharine, KY, because of Katrina in 2005, Sr. Gloria soon endeared herself to the Sisters and staff at the Motherhouse, and later at Sansbury Care Center, by her gracious concern for others and her gentle humor. Having transitioned well from Arizona to Louisiana to Kentucky, Sr. Gloria readily embraced her new Dominican Sister of Peace identity in 2009. All of these prepared Sr. Gloria for the final stage of her paschal journey to the next life.

Sr. Gloria is survived by her sister-in-law, Lydia Moreno, several nieces and nephews, and their children. 

The visitation and will be held on Monday, February 11, at 3pm at the Sansbury Care Center Chapel. The funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, February 12, at 11am at Sansbury Care Center Chapel. Burial will be at the St. Catharine Motherhouse cemetery.

Memorial gifts in Sr. Gloria's name may be sent to Dominican Sisters of Peace, Office of Mission Advancement, 2320 Airport Dr, Columbus, OH 43219-2098 or submitted securely online at oppeace.org.

In later years, Sr. Theresa also ministered as the congregation’s Eastern regional assistant, administrator of the Dominican Center (Plainville, MA), program director and coordinator for the Archdiocesan Health Care Network (Washington, DC), and director of the Development Office of Ministry Support (Louisville, KY). In 2003, Sr. Theresa returned to the St. Catharine Motherhouse, where she became a volunteer and served her local community in a variety of areas including transporter - she greatly enjoyed driving people anywhere they needed to go, especially the airport. Then, on January 11, 2013, Sr. Theresa moved to Sansbury Care Center.

Sr. Theresa will be remembered as a woman of exuberance and vitality. She attracted friends from all walks of life, and she enjoyed making others laugh and contemplate life. She was a positive person, who was always willing to help others and serve God's people.

Years before her death, Sr. Theresa was diagnosed with cancer and told she had only months to live. Ever the positive woman of deep faith, Sr. Theresa lived each and every day to its absolute fullest. One friend recalled that Sr. Theresa lived life just as she had as a young woman, and she seemed to always be aware of being on her way to something new and unknown. Sr. Theresa proved doctors wrong when her "months to live" turned into many additional years.

The visitation for Sr. Theresa will be held on Thursday, February 7, at 3pm in the Sansbury Care Center Chapel (St. Catharine, KY). The funeral Mass will also be held at Sansbury Care Center (St. Catharine, KY) on Friday, February 8, at 11am.
