Sister Kieran O'Connor

Governor honors Presentation Sister

California Gov. Jerry Brown proclaimed Dec. 18 as Sister Kieran Day to honor Sister M. Kieran O'Connor's 75 years as a Catholic educator.

Sister Kieran entered the Sisters of the Presentation San Francisco in 1939 and has spent her ministry years as an elementary school principal and teacher at Presentation-staffed schools in San Francisco, Oakland, Montebello, Menlo Park, Morgan Hill and San Jose. She is currently one of the vice principals at Saint Christopher School, San Jose, where she has served since 1984.

The proclamation reads in part: "WHEREAS, Sister Kieran's teaching vocation spans seventy-five (75) years of service — both in and out of the classroom — to legions of children of California she deserves our thanks and special recognition."
