Sr. Blaise Flynn, OP

Blaise Flynn-webSr. Blaise Flynn, Watertown, MA, has devoted the last 30 years of her life as a Dominican Sister to the cause dearest to her heart, ending homelessness. For 20 years she served as Administrator of Programs for Women and Children, and then as Case Manager, at Pine Street Inn, Boston, MA. Pine Street Inn is the largest resource for homeless men and women in New England. “Although my contribution to the cause was considerable,” Sr. Blaise said, “I received so much more than I gave.”

Prior to working with the homeless, Sr. Blaise ministered as a teacher in schools in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio and Nebraska. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Art and Theology from Siena College in Memphis, TN and a Master of Arts in Religious Education from Fordham University in the Bronx, NY. She is now retired.

Sr. Blaise remembers the quote on the cover of her first profession booklet: “God, who can do great things, has treated me wondrously.” She said, “This has held true throughout all my years of religious life. I cannot think of any other way I would have wanted to spend my life. As I ponder the years, I am left with a profound sense of gratitude.”

Yes, I want to make a donation to the Congregation in Sister’s honor.

    God, connecting with Blaise, Beverly Roberts and now Joy, oh Joy…life is forever surprising me. I visit Rosary and have had such happy memories and continue to reminisce. Wish I knew where Dorothy Ann went to….I wish you Blaise nothing but happiness, health and thankful for all you have said to me presently! Congratulations, I can’t believe it’s been soooo many years!

  2. Dear Sr. Mary Blaise,
    Congratulations!!! Would you believe I just finished reading Sr. Paschala’s book Signadou after all these years.
    I have glanced at parts of it but I just read it cover to cover.
    It certainly brought back so many memories.
    I went on the web-site to find out if Sr. was still at
    St. Catharine’s and I found you!!
    I am so happy for you. The above article said you are in Watertown. Are you at Rosary?
    I wish you all the best.
    Love,
    Joy (Sister Mary Joy)
