Are there still Sisters teaching at the Academy?
Yes, there is still one SNJM sister teaching at the Academy. Sister Mary Glavin has taught senior religion in previous years, which she has continued to do this semester as a Christian Lifestyles teacher. This year, she started offering counseling services to the alumni. Besides Sister Mary Glavin, there are several other sisters who help around on campus. Sister Lisa Perkowski, an Immaculate Heart of Mary sister and partner in mission with the SNJMs, is the director of the Campus Ministry and Mission Office this year. Sister Mariellen Blaser, an SNJM sister, works part-time and serves as Archivist for the Academy. You might also see Elizabeth “Sister Liz” McGill around campus, a novice preparing to take vows as an IHM Sister. She will be at the Academy for a couple of months to learn about Campus Ministry and Mission, but will return to Scranton for the rest of the year to continue her preparations.
