Sister Alice Marie Lyon entered religious life from her home parish of St. Anthony’s in Cohasset, Mass. For 45 years, she has ministered at Sacred Heart High School in Kingston, Mass. She taught science in the biology/chemistry department from 1967–2005, at which time she became the school’s business administrator, a position she holds to this day.
Sister Alice Marie remembers wanting to be just like her teachers—Sisters of Divine Providence. She says of living out the charism of the Sisters, “Providence is God’s loving care for each of us, and God’s work must be our work. God counts on our hands and feet. Reaching out, being able to be the hands, the feet, the comforting voice, or listening ear, is life-giving for me.”
