SISTER PASSES — Sister Cecile Fahl, SMS, died Aug. 18 in Saskatoon at the age of 85. One of the first members of the Saskatchewan-based religious order the Sisters of Mission Service, Fahl was a lifelong teacher and a founder and facilitator of the Lay Formation program in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon. Fahl was a teacher and principal at Major, Sask. and with the Saskatoon Catholic school division. Later she worked at the pastoral office of the diocese. It was during this time that Bishop James Mahoney asked her to help develop a Lay Formation program in response to Pope John Paul's call to make the formation of the laity a priority. The program was launched in fall 1987 with Fahl as the first co-ordinator. In her retirement, Fahl's interests included her pet dog Sean, gardening, reading and travel, as well as cheering for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
