Sister M. Klarellis Schlüter

✝ Thursday, August 8th 2019


Resurrection is our faith, Reunion is our hope, remembrance is our love. 
(Aurelius Augustinus)

In faith in the resurrection and in the hope of completion in God’s glory, our dear Sister M. Klarellis Schlüter, the former Klara Schlüter, returned home to her Creator on August 8, 2019.

Sister M. Klarellis was born on June 25, 1937 in Bockum-Hövel. She entered our Congregation on August 15, 1962 and professed her religious vows on May 3, 1965.

The life of Sister M. Klarellis was marked by faith in God, by selfless care for the community and by helpfulness for the people. For many years, Sister M. Klarellis committed herself in various Hospitals of our Congregation in the nursing care.

After completing an additional educational program, Sister M. Klarellis served as a geriatric nurse from 1981 to 1987 in St. Agatha House in Gronau-Epe. From 1987 to 1993, Sister M. Klarellis worked in ‘St. Augustinus Haus’ in Nordwalde.  In 1993, Sister M. Klarellis changed to Convent St. Imgardis in Telgte. Here she cared for the older Sisters until disbanding the convent in Telgte.

Since May 2017, Sister M. Klarellis lived in St. Heriburg House in Münster. With great personal devotion and with remarkable sensitivity, she lovingly and competently cared for the Sisters, entrusted to her. She could often be found in the Adoration Chapel and she carried the concerns of her relatives, of our Congregation, of the Church and the world in prayer to God.

Sister M. Klarellis died on August 8, 2019, about 7:40 PM after a long suffering, which she bore with great patience and serenity. Willingly and full of gratitude, Sister M. Klarellis went to meet the Incarnate and Risen Christ. May for her come true, in what she always put her trust: to find her last perfection and her eternal home in heaven.

Gratefully we say farewell to Sister M. Klarellis. We know that she is now called to eternal communion with the Lord. In prayer and in the celebration of the Eucharist, we remember her and remain united with her.
