Sr. Catherine Sullivan, DMJ, Pastoral Assistant
The Life of Sr. Catherine, DMJ, is one of dedication to the call of our Founder “…to be there for the whole Church…for our brothers and sisters.”

Her ministry has spanned teaching in archdiocesan elementary and high schools over a period of 40+ years. One of the high points in her teaching career was her 14 years spent at SJHS as teacher and vice-principal. Meeting with former students gives her great joy!

Along with that ministry she prepared herself academically and spiritually at local universities: Mount St. Mary’s College, Immaculate Heart College, and Cal Poly, acquiring degrees in English, Social Studies, and an MA degree in Education.

Since 2002, Sr. Catherine has ministered as Pastoral Assistant at St. Louis de Montfort Parish, immersing herself in the active life of the parish. She is a member of the Parish Council, and moderator of the following ministries:  Altar Care, Altar Servers, Bereavement, Liturgy, Food Pantry, Ushers.

Sr. Catherine’s “hobbies” include: reading, relaxing at the beach, cooking, and meeting with friends to listen, comfort, pray with, and laugh with.
