On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Catherine. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of Catherine's life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire McCarthy family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Catherine.

To all of the McCarthy family:

Please accept my deepest sympathy at this difficult time. Your mom was a pillar of strength and a rock of faith. I can’t think of my 50 + years at St. Vincent Ferrer without remembering how she was always present, helping at every opportunity. Nursing was her passion even when she was not at work. God bless her and God bless your family; her wonderful legacy!
