It is with great sorrow that we announce that our Sister Maryann Palko, CCW entered into eternal life January 4, 2016.  Sr. Maryann served God, her community and the Church faithfully for over 50 years.  She was faithfully involved in the Hands and Hearts Ministry to Haiti.  She has touched many hearts in many places and she will be deeply missed by the Carmelite Community of the Word, her family and friends, and the Little Sisters of the Incarnation in Haiti.  

“Go now in peace faithful friend of God,                                                 

Sr. Maryann Palko, CCW

As you take our love into paradise,
God’s holy angels will lead you home
To the wide waiting arms of the Lord.”
