Sister Corinne Gurka Memorial Scholarship

Former Principal, Franciscan Sister of St. Joseph, Mary Corinne Gurka, died on December 5, 2014.  
Sr. Corinne was the beloved principal of Mater Dolorosa School from 1995 – 2011.  For 48 years Sr. Corinne ministered in the field of education, as a teacher and principal.  In her role as principal of MD School, Sr. Corinne touched the lives of countless students, as well as teachers, staff and parents.  The school children loved her and Sister loved each of them.   Sr. Corinne had a beautiful smile and the joy that filled her heart was contagious.  She encouraged “her children” to be peacemakers in the spirit of St. Francis.  May Sr. Corinne now experience the joy and peace of being in the presence of God forever!
Memorial donations may be made in Sr. Corinne’s memory to be used for scholarships for current students of MD School.  Donations may be mailed to the school or dropped off at the school office.  Thank you for your generosity!
