In May, we join many in honouring Sister Pauline O’Regan, whose long, full life closed on 2 May 2019. And we acknowledge here the communities to which she belonged – the O’Regan family, Ngā Whaea Atawhai o Aotearoa / Sisters of Mercy New Zealand, the diverse world of Christchurch, and the wide group of readers who loved her books.
'It has been a privilege and joy for all of us to know Pauline and especially to share our lives with her. She has left behind a wonderful legacy and we thank her profoundly for all that she has taught us.'
–Sister Marie McCrea, The Press, 1 June 2019.
