Description

Marie Thérèse Lucille Paré was born in Auburn, Maine in 1923. At the age of seven she was sent to live with the Dominican nuns while her father went to Canada to find work during the Depression. Lucille remained at the convent until she graduated, and returned at age 26 to take holy orders. As a Dominican prioress, she headed the Lewiston convent until just before its closure in the late 1960s. She was also prioress in Phoenix, Arizona, where she earned her PhD, and went on to head an adult religious education initiative.
