Sr. Mary Daniel Turner, RIP

 |  NCR Today

I just received word that Sr. Mary Daniel Turner, a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur, long time executive director of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), and one of the great leaders of the renewal after the Second Vatican Council, died peacefully this morning, Jan. 27, at 4 a.m.

As Jane Burke, also a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur, said simply in her notice: “As with the dying of Mary Luke Tobin last year, a great tree has fallen.”

May their strong and courageous spirits live on.
