JOLIET – Sisters Margaret Hoffman and Lucille Krippel were recently honored for the dedicated service at their varied ministries. Both of these sisters are members of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Francis of Mary Immaculate, more commonly known as the Joliet Franciscan Sisters.
Sister Margaret Hoffman was recently honored by the Diocese of Columbus (Ohio) Department of Education for her dedication to Catholic Education.
A native of Columbus, Hoffman has taught high school English for more than 50 years. When Hoffman first entered the congregation, her first teaching assignment was at St. Francis Academy (now Joliet Catholic Academy-JCA) in Joliet followed by St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Louisville, Ohio.
Hoffman was then assigned to the Diocese of Columbus where she continued to teach high school English. She has been at her present ministry, St. Charles Preparatory High School in Columbus, Ohio, for the past 25 years.
Hoffman also prepares the school’s liturgies and serves as the local chapter coordinator for several of the Joliet Franciscan Sisters who live in Ohio and Michigan.
