CHICAGO (SCS) — A heartfelt “Happy Birthday” to Chicago treasure, Sister Jean!
Loyola University men’s basketball chaplain Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt turned 103 on Saturday.
And of course there was a party.
Sister Jean was surrounded by so many friends and fans to honor her big day, and she was all smiles.
To make it even more special, the city has dedicated the plaza in front of the CTA’s Loyola Red Line stop to him.
There were famous Sister Jean fans in the crowd, including Governor JB Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who were both dressed in brown and gold Loyola.
They all spoke of Sister Jean’s integrity, compassion and grace.
