Sister Doris Ann Bowles, O.P.      November 2, 2019
It is with sadness that we share the passing of Sister Doris Ann Bowles, O.P.  Sister Doris Ann served as Vice Principal of Union Catholic Girls High School (1868-1970) and then as Principal (1970-1978). We join together in prayer for the repose of her soul.
Sister Elizabeth Michael Boyle, O.P.      December 30, 2021
The UC community prays for the repose of the soul of Sister Elizabeth Michael Boyle, OP, a Sister of St. Dominic of Caldwell for 76 years, who passed away on December 30, 2021 at the age of 94.
Sister Elizabeth Michael was one of the six “founding” Dominicans who came to Union Catholic Girls High School when the doors first opened in September 1962.  Sister taught a variety of English and writing classes, and served as moderator for Encounter yearbook, Oasis literary magazine, and National Honor Society. Sister Elizabeth Michael earned her BA in English and French from Caldwell College, an MA in English and Philosophy from the Catholic University of America, and a Ph.D. in Literature and Philosophy from Drew University. Upon leaving UC after the 1968-1969 school year, Sister became a Professor of English at Caldwell University. Sister Elizabeth Michael was an accomplished published poet, whose brilliant teaching inspired generations of learners.  Sister maintained her ties to UC, and attended the 50th Graduation Anniversary celebrations for the Classes of 1966 and 1967.
