Sr Maria Suso Rispoli


Favorite Quote: “Jesus answered… “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.” – John 14:23


After growing up in Clearwater, Florida, Sr. Maria Suso Rispoli made her final vows right before coming to PND. Since then, she has enjoyed the ease of dropping into the chapel in the center of school for prayer; the down-to-earth, good natured attitude of the students, families, and staff; and the blend of tradition and openness to new ideas and ways of doing things. Sr. Maria Suso Rispoli displayed an aptitude for teaching from a young age, even teaching a lesson in fourth grade to her classmates! The call to religious life fit well with her order, the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, with its apostolic focus on traditional classroom education. She also enjoys walking trails, reading, singing, and poetry, especially form poetry.
