Where are they Now?

Many former students have asked about the sisters who taught at the Academy.  Below is their most recent photo taken in July, 2013.  We have also included a little information about what they are doing today.

Sr. Mary Mark Bartoo

Sr. Mary Mark Bartoo lives in the Sister's Residence at St. Paul Hermitage. She knows every inch of St. Paul's and keeps it running on a daily basis.

After serving as Principal of Our Lady of Grace Academy, Sr. Emily continued her career in education working at several schools in the Indianapolis area.  Sr. Emily is retired and lives at Our Lady of Grace Monastery.

Sr. Louise Hoeing

We all know the term, "it's hard to keep a good woman down?" Well in the case of Sr. Louise Hoeing, it's hard to get her to slow down!  After leaving the Academy in 1975, Sr. Louise began the rest of her teaching career at Bishop Chatard High School until her retirement in 2013.

Sr. Patricia Dede

Sr. Patricia Dede worked in parish ministry after leaving the classroom.  Prior to her returning to the Monastery, she worked at St. Cecelia's Parish in Clearwater, Florida.  Today Sr. Pat works with hospice patients.

Sr. Heidi Marie Krack also continues to educate young people. Presently she teaches at St. Matthew School in Indianapolis. Now, instead of teaching high school age students, she prepares the young students for high school.

Sr. Eugenia Reibel

Sr. Eugenia Reibel had many roles during her long career.  While at the Academy, Sr. Eugenia was the Guidance Counselor.  Today, Sr. Eugenia guides and counsels in a different way.  Although retired, she continues to share her wisdom and experience with her sisters,

Sr. Mary Gilbert Schipp

Sr. Mary Gilbert Schipp taught Business classes while at the Academy and her expertise in that field has defined her role in the community evert since.  Since leaving the education field, Sr. Mary Gilbert has served as the Administrator of St. Paul Hermitage, Business Manager for the Hermitage and Monastery and as Treasurer.

Sr. Jeanne Voges

[Sr. Mary Hubert]

Sr. Renee Wargel

 

Sr. Jeanne Voges did more than change her name since teaching at the Academy - she also changed careers.  After leaving the classroom, Sr. Jeanne began a new career - one that took her as far away from home to Cali, Columbia where she served the people if that area and then closer to home in  Newburgh, Indiana as a Pastoral Associate.  Sr. Jeanne retired to the Monastery in 2011.

Sr. Renee Wargel loved music from a very early age and that love of music has stayed with her throughout her life.  Her great passion for music spilled over into the classroom as she taught music for most of her time as an educator.  Sr. Renee retired in 2013 and uses her talents for the community as she continues to love music.
