Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis
For you are my rock and my fortress; for your name’s sake lead me and guide me.
Sister M. Mechtilde was born on July 12, 1923 in Höxter-Brenkhausen. She entered our Congregation on August 13, 1955 and made her first profession of vows on May 3, 1958.
Her life was marked by a deep faith and a deep unity with Christ. As an unpretentious and humble Sister, she walked in the footsteps of St. Francis.
With confidence and well prepared, she awaited the coming of her Savior and Redeemer, on 24 May, 2016, called her to eternity.
Grateful for her life in the service of our Congregation, we say farewell to Sister M. Mechtilde. We know that she is now called to eternal communion with the Lord. We remain united with her and remember her in prayer and in the celebration of the Eucharist.
