Sincere and prayerful condolences to the family of Jean Bernard (especially her children and grandchildren) who died on Monday, February 28. Jean was a vibrant member of the Archdiocesan Catechetical community for many years. A parishioner of Our Lady of Fatima, Curepe, Jean was a faithful catechist and catechetical coordinator of the Suburban Vicariate for many years, but more than that she contributed to the Catechetical Page of the Catholic News for more than 10 years. She remained dedicated to her task of providing material for the Catechetical Page even when ill health prevented her. Her last column appeared in the October 17, 2010, issue when she wrote on Our Lady of the Rosary.
Well done, good and faithful servant. May she rest in peace.
