Sister Anne Xavier Loubert, CSJ

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Sr. Anne Xavier, CSJ, who died Thursday, October 19, at Mt. St. Joseph in Waterville.  Sister spent 80 of her 99 years as a professed member of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Lyons – 31 one of these as a missionary in India and 40 as a missionary in Maine.

Sister Anne-Xavier (Marie Flora) Loubert CSJ, was born in Waterville on July 28, 1918, the fifth of the seven children of Ernest and Maybelle (Jacques) Loubert.

She attended Regis College and Fordham University and entered the novitiate of the Sisters of St. Joseph at South Berwick in 1935, making religious profession in 1937. Her first assignment was at Holy Family School in Lewiston, where she taught for the eight years. She then served for 31 years in India as a teacher and social worker. After returning to the United States in 1977, she was involved in religious education programs at St. John the Baptist Parish in Winslow and St. Agnes Parish in Pittsfield. She also lived her “Ministry of Presence” at St. Theresa Parish in Oakland.

In your prayers, please remember the religious and natural families that Sister Anne Xavier leaves behind. May her soul and the soul of all the faithful departed rest in peace.  Amen.
