Three cheers to Sister Louise Bullis, who is celebrating her 70th anniversary — that’s platinum if you want to send a gift — as a Maryknoll Sister. The borough daughter entered the order in 1945 where she received her religious name of Sister M. Raymond Gerard, and made her first profession of vows three years later.
Her first assignment, after receiving a bachelor’s degree in 1951, was teaching second graders in Maui. She then returned to the mainland and earned a masters in theology from Manhattan College in 1970. She returned to Honolulu to teach two years later.
After an illustrious and storied teaching career Sister Bullis returned to Maryknoll in 2007 and organized major events for the congregation’s 100th anniversary in 2012. She continues to reside at the center, where she maintains an active role in the community.
Standing O wishes Sister Bullis many more years of service.
