Remembering Sister Sheila McAuliffe, CND

Becoming Neighbours

Sheila, as you know, was simply quite amazing!


Sheila was an educator “par excellence”. She had a vision of the reign of God where the potential of each and every person was realized and where each person, especially women, could make their own unique contribution to the common good. There was a unique charm and flair about Sheila. With her eye and her heart persistently focused on how to move things forward, Sheila was a determined force to reckoned with. She did whatever was necessary, whether it be to coax, nudge, advocate or, if necessary, to use all her political astuteness to help women claim their voice. Sheila’s abiding faith compelled her to reach out to others with small gestures of kindness. This was most evident in how she related to the staff of 750 Kingston Rd. and at 2 O’Connor and how they related to her. Dignity of all people was really important to Sheila, and she wanted everyone to know that he/she was loved, appreciated, and valued. She personified the meaning of justice for all.


In gratitude for Sheila’s presence with the ministry of Becoming Neighbours. 


May the perpetual light be with Sheila. 


Together, let us be in solidarity with refugees and all immigrants,


Peter McKenna, SCJ, Becoming Neighbours
