Sister Maria Andrea Corsina Halahan, SSND

First Profession August 28, 1874

On November 7, 1876, Mother Mary Caroline Friess reported the death of the first School Sister to die in Canada, Sister Andrea.

As a child, Sister Andrea was educated by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, first in the parish grade school and then as a boarder in Belleville, Illinois. As an SSND, she helped to open Immaculate Conception, Formosa, Ontario, in 1872. This was only the second SSND mission in Canada. In March 1876 Sister Andrea developed a severe inflammation of the lungs which led to her death. The sisters in her community were impressed with the way she prepared for death. Sister Andrea was 23 years old when she died.
