Sr Mary Reparatrice LaLoggia
Birth: Feb. 3, 1913
Brooklyn
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA
Death: Sep. 26, 2011
New York, USA

Sr. Mary Reparatrice is survived by her order, the Sisters of Mercy, as well as her loving nephews and nieces. She lived at the Our Lady of Mercy Convent on South Oyster Bay Road in Hicksville, NY for many years and was a religious for 78 years.

Sister Mary Reparatrice was born and raised in Brooklyn, the daughter of Gaetanio and Lillian Laloggia (who were both born in Italy). She enjoyed sharing the story about how she ran away from home as a young woman to elope and marry Jesus as a Sister of Mercy of the Americas Mid-Atlantic Community.

Sister was a gifted teacher and leader in the Catholic charismatic renewal. She first taught at St. Patrick's, Brooklyn (1936-45), and then came to Long Island to teach at St. Patrick's, Bay Shore (1945-56). She served as secretary at Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Syosset (1956-81). Since then, she served in parish ministry as a pastoral associate at Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Hicksville, and also worked with the charismatic renewal at Our Lady of Mercy and St. Ignatius in Hicksville, and Our Lady of Grace in West Babylon.

She explained in a recent Newsday article that she became a prayer group leader in 1979, and later asked her friend Mae Bennett to become co-leader. "We did a lot of things, including praying with inmates at the jail, patients at Nassau County Medical Center, and various ministries at the parish." In her last note to Therese she wrote, "We cease leadership on June 28th. But the Charismatic Renewal still remains very much alive in me."
