Marian University says good-bye to Sr. Norma

This small nun leaves some very big shoes to fill.

CIC founding board member and Interfaith Ambassador of the Year Sr. Norma Rocklege says:

Peace and all good to you, my beloved Marian University community. I seldom find it difficult to express my feelings adequately, but I do find it so with this message. At the request of the General Council of my community, I am retiring from Marian as of this academic year.
I have had the privilege of serving the Marian community, both as a faculty and staff member and a member of the Board of Trustees, for almost 50 years and have been very blessed by that gift. I cannot fully express my gratitude for all the prayers offered for me during my recent health issues. Those prayers have been answered, as I feel strength returning each day. As I reflect on the years of my faculty/staff participation, the memories are overwhelmingly rich, and I find myself praying a litany of thanksgiving for shared joys and sorrows, successes and failures.

It has been such a great source of joy to share the lives of the many wonderful students who I have met over these years. They always have given me HOPE. President Elsener has said I can always consider myself a member of the Marian community, as such I hope to be on campus often—both for academic and athletic events. I shall miss all of you incredibly, but you will be in my prayer and heart daily.

May all your endeavors be graced with God’s kind of success!

With deep affection,

Sister Norma
