Sister Mary Weatherly, formerly Sister Pius, entered religious life from St. Mary's parish in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. Her decision to enter religious life was greatly influenced by the Sisters of her home parish; their prayerfulness and cheerfulness. Sister Mary says, "The charism of our community is trust in Divine Providence. As I entered the community that was the purpose of my life—to be true to this calling."
Sister Mary holds a bachelor of education from Duquesne University and a master of arts from the University of America. As an educator, she served as both an elementary school teacher and principal (1941-1980). She also has a certificate of clinical competence in speech pathology from the American Speech and Hearing Association and ministered in speech therapy (1980-2005). Sister Mary was also a pastoral associate and volunteered as a daycare worker at St. Anne’s in Castle Shannon, Pennsylvania (1997-2009). Since 2010 she has been in prayer ministry.
Self-described as a happy religious, enthusiastic teacher and joyful member of the community, Sister Mary enjoys teaching and helping the Sisters at Providence Heights.
