My name is Sr. Cecelia Warner. I am blessed to have been born into a family of eight siblings, four boys and four girls in Blue Earth, Minnesota. Growing up in a rural area afforded me great opportunities to grow in my Catholic faith and care for God's creation. After being educated by the School Sisters of Notre Dame from first grade through 12th grade, I entered this international religious order, the SSNDs, after high school.
My 48 years of teaching elementary students have been in MN, IA, NM, and AZ. I earned my Masters of Education degree in Integrated Language Arts at Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa. Having been professed on July 17, 1968, I began celebrating my 50th Jubilee as a religious sister with the school family in St. Louis the King in Glendate, AZ. Now this celebration of God's goodness continues in New Ulm, at St. Anthony Elementary School!
