Sister Elizabeth Platt, COC

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Sr. Elizabeth Platt, 87 who died Thursday, January 17.  Sister Liz, as she was commonly known, died at home, which was her wish, with family, friends and her pastor present.

Originally from Media, Pennsylvania, Sr. Liz  served the people of Boston in her early years of religious life, including leading a boys' choir, a memory she cherished throughout her life.  She came to Maine in 1972 and began working at St. Dominic Parish in Portland.  From 1982 to 1987, she was the Region III catechetical resource person for the Diocese of Portland.  In more recent years, she has worked as the pastoral associate at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Auburn, where her ministries included the children’s choir, faith formation education, and ministering to members of the parish, especially the sick and dying.   A complete obituary may be found here.

Please prayer for the consolation of Sister Elizabeth's family and friends, including Sr. Irene Platt, COC, her niece and companion for many years.

May her soul and the soul of all the faithful departed rest in peace.  Amen.
