RAJCA, Sister Mary Irene Rajca   -  Sister Mary Irene (Stephanie) Rajca, 99, peacefully went home to her God, on Monday, November 21, 2022, at Notre Dame Convent in Waterdown.

Sister Mary Irene was one of the first Canadian Felician Sisters.

During her 80 years of religious life, she ministered in elementary school education for 37 years.

After retiring from teaching, Sister Irene helped in the office at St. Stan's Day Nursery, prepared lunches for the homeless at St. Felix Centre, and taught English to new Canadians.

In 1992, she went to Warsaw, Poland, to teach English to a few priests and Felician Sisters for 3 years.

In recent years, she served as assistant librarian and chronicler for Holy Name of Mary Convent.

Sister was predeceased by her parents, John and Katherine; as well as her brothers, Michael and Joseph; and sisters, Mary and Danusia. She is fondly remembered, especially by her nieces, Rosanne (Michael) Kril and Maria (Richard) Grotek; their families; and many other nieces and nephews of the Nicolak and Rajca families.

The Felician Sisters express their sincere gratitude to the School Sisters of Notre Dame, and their nursing staff for their dedicated care of Sister Irene since 2016.

Visitation will be held at Turner and Porter Neweduk Chapel, Mississauga (1981 Dundas St. W., ), on Tuesday, November 29th, from 2–4 p.m. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Holy Name of Mary Convent Chapel on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at 10 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Felician Sisters.
