Happy 111th birthday!

By The Catholic Week
Sister Mary Aidan Donaldson, R.S.M. celebrated her 111 birthday on Aug. 20.
Sister Mary Aidan is believed to be the oldest Sister of Mercy in the world and perhaps the oldest member of any Religious Order.
According to Sister Deborah Kennedy, R.S.M., Sister Mary Aidan is up and dressed, sitting in the community room reading, as well as, observing all the comings and goings and occasionally summoning a passerby by name on most days.
She still participates in community activities — and that includes everything from liturgy and prayer, to bingo and bunco.
