Sister M. Colette Kwieczka - 70 years of religious life!

Sister M. Colette Kwieczka was born on March 17, 1936, in Chicago. She entered religious life on September 8, 1950, and professed her vows on August 12, 1954. Sister went to Madonna High School in Chicago and was taught by the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago who inspired her to join religious life.

Sister received her Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Loyola University and her Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University. Sister M. Colette's ministry and dedication in education continued by serving at the following parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago:

  • Five Holy Martyrs (1955 - 1969)
  • St. Pancratius (1969 - 1971 and 1987 - 2002)

Sister M. Colette then served in the Diocese of Gary, Indiana, and ministered at Blessed Sacrament Parish from 1971 to 1987. Later, Sr. M. Colette joined and resided with the Sisters at St. Anthony Convent in Crown Point, Indiana, from 2002 to 2009. Since 2009, Sister M.
