ALBANY, NY (WRGB) A beloved nun for the Diocese of Albany has died in a tragic car crash, according to the the Evangelist.
Sister Monica Murphy, CSJ was the director at the Pyramid Life Center and also had connections to Catholic Central High School.
According to the Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet Sister Monica was killed in a crash on Monday nights. She was 77 years old.
She was a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet for the past 58 years.
“All of us in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany are so saddened to learn of the news of Sister Monica’s passing. She was a beloved figure in our Diocese, bringing her passion for her Catholic faith — and for all people — to everything she did, whether in our Catholic schools, where she served for more than four decades, or at Pyramid Life Center, where she was the driving force that has kept that camp thriving since its beginnings. Our prayers are with the communities of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet, Catholic Central High School and Pyramid Life Center during this difficult time. Our prayers also for sister’s family, including Sister Maureen Murphy, CSJ. We know Sister Monica has gone before us marked with the sign of faith to meet the One to whom she gave her entire life, but that does not make it any easier for those of us left behind. We will miss her, but we will carry on the work she loved in her absence and in her memory,” said Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger in a statement.
The Evangelist reports that the crash occurred near Pyramid Lake which is located in Schroon, NY.
We are working to lean more on the crash.
