FUNERAL HOME

5 Eddy St
West Warwick, RI
Harding, RSM, Sister Mary Faith (formerly Barbara Ann), 88, a Sister of Mercy for 71 years, died on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at Sturdy Memorial Hospital. She was the daughter of the late William F. and Deborah (Gorton) Harding and sister of the late Dorothy Harding Cassidy. She is survived by her brother William and nieces and nephews.

Sister Faith's motto was "I have come to serve, not to reign" and this was evident in her many years of service. She began her teaching ministry working in schools in the Providence Diocese, including a position as librarian at St. Mary's, Bay View. In 1964, Sister Faith transferred to Bishop Feehan High School in Attleboro, MA. Thus began a long-standing, loving relationship with the Feehan community, first as teacher and librarian, then as Feehan's principal. She served in that capacity for 18 years.

Sister Faith will be remembered as a woman of deep faith with an abiding love for her students and those with whom she ministered. She had a gift for quiet, consistent and strong leadership at Feehan. She then exhibited these same gifts at St. Mary's, Bay View from 1992 -2006 as vice-principal.

Her sense of humor, the twinkle in her eyes, her courage in adversity, her love of life – these are the memories her friends and companions in Mercy will cherish in their hearts.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 18, 2021 at St. John the Evangelist Church, 133 North Main Street, Attleboro, MA. Visitation will begin in the church at 9:00 a.m. followed by a Mercy Prayer Service at 10:45 a.m. Interment will be at Resurrection Cemetery, Cumberland, RI. All are encouraged to please wear masks.
