DAYTON — A Cloverdale native who has spent more than 45 years ministering in Chile is celebrating her 60th anniversary of religious life this year.

Sister Maria Luisa Miller is one of a dozen Precious Blood Sisters celebrating milestone Jubilees in 2014. The sisters were honored June 29 in Dayton and individual celebrations will occur throughout the year at the sisters’ hometowns and places of ministry.

Sister Maria Luisa was raised on a farm outside of Cloverdale. She attended Ottoville Elementary School and graduated from Fatima Hall in Dayton. Sister Maria Luisa entered the Sisters of the Precious Blood Jan. 31, 1954.

She was missioned to Chile in 1966 and has ministered there since. She is currently active in pastoral ministry with spiritual teams and Ignatian retreats. For nine years she worked in parish and retreat ministry at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in La Florida, Santiago. Sister Maria Luisa spent 24 years ministering at the Conference of Religious in Santiago and served in parish ministry in Cerro Navia. She’s also worked in parish ministry at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Curacavi. She previously taught fifth grade at St. Gaspar Boys School. Prior to being missioned to Chile, Sister Maria Luisa taught elementary school in Linton, N.D.; St. Joseph, Mo.; and Ottawa, Ohio.

“Through all these years, my family has been a great support to the call I have received,” Sister Maria Luisa said. “May God grant us the graces we desire to continue in this far-away land to share our lives and spirituality!”

Sister Maria Luisa lives in La Florida, Santiago, Chile.
