We remember Mary Lou Halpin, SND Associate, July 19, 1925-December 14, 2018.

Mary Lou Halpin was the mother of nine, grandmother of twenty-one and great-grandmother of eighteen. Mary Lou was widowed at a young age, and after her youngest son graduated with his Master’s Degree, Mary Lou decided to go to college. She graduated with a major in philosophy and a minor in religion.  Next, Mary Lou graduated from the Lay Ministry Development Program and worked for a number of years at St. Catherine Parish in Ft. Thomas, KY. 

The Notre Dame Sisters had always been a part of Mary Lou’s life--first at Sacred Heart School in Bellevue, KY and then at Notre Dame Academy. When the Covington Province began formal Association, Mary Lou eagerly joined the first group to make their covenant in 2004. 

Mary Lou was always an active and dedicated SND Associate. During the last year of her life, Mary Lou continued to host an Associate Faith Sharing group at St. Charles Community. On the day before she died, Mary Lou prayed the Associates’ daily prayer with Sr. Mary Luann, her formation companion. Mary Lou will remain in the thoughts and prayers of the Notre Dame Community.
