Sr. Romalke receives visit from former students

Sr. Esther Romalke recently was visited by former students Linda Marie (Walczynski) Louie (left) and her sister, Debbie Walczynski. Sr. Esther was principal and teacher from 1961 to1967 at SS. Peter & Paul in Duluth, Minnesota, where both women attended school. Sr. Esther had a tremendous positive impact on their family, a story which has been lovingly written by Linda and published in The Cusan (fall/winter 2010-2011 issue), an apostolate of persons with chronic illness and/or disability. Read the first half of the story at (The second half is yet to be published.)
