We received the sad news that Sister Miriam Xavier Mug passed away on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 3:00 PM, after a very brief illness at the Maryknoll Sisters Centre, New York.
Sister Teresa Leung writes, “Sister would be 102 on September 22, 2015. Sister was not sick but she had a hard time in breathing. For the last few days, she was on oxygen. Sister was very alert until the end. Last evening when the Sisters said “Good Night” to her and asked her to rest well, she said, ‘How can I rest well, when you all are in and out all the time like an Irish Wake.’
She always asked me to make her Juk (Chinese congee) when she had no appetite. Yesterday, I made congee with chicken stock, dried scallops, jumbo shrimp and Chinese cabbage. She thanked me for it and said she would have it later as she had just finished her meal. Sister also said she was not going to die during Holy Week because we had too much to do.”

The Funeral Arrangements are as follows:
Wake – Monday, April 6, 2015 at 4:15 p.m
Funeral Eucharistic Liturgy – Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.
Location: Main Chapel of Maryknoll Sisters Motherhouse at Ossining, New York.

Eulogy at Mass

Remembering Sister Miriam Xavier.
