Betty Mary Pang

Blessed Sacrament, O.C.D. (Betty Mary

Pang) immigrated from Hong Kong to

Canada in 1976. She worked for many

years in Toronto and later heard the call

to join Carmel. She entered the monastery

at St. Agatha, Ontario and was the

fi rst sister to join our Western Foundation

Sister Stella made her Final Profession on

October 11, 1993 here among many new

friends. She loved her Homeland greatly

and devoted her life to work, prayer and

sacrifi ce for her people. The story of her

conversion was another one of God’s

miracles in her life. Our Lady was her

Sweet Mother and the rosary, during free

time, was always in her tiny hands.

Sister Stella was born on November 7,

1921 in Hong Kong. She was predeceased

by her father, Yun Ting Pang, her mother,

Lai Ngor Wong, her brother Peter and

one sister. She has two living brothers,
