Sr. Noel Aranjaniyil

I am a member of Franciscan Clarist Congregation from Kerala, India.  I have been teaching at St. John the Baptist School and in the Parish Faith Formation Program since 1994.  St. John’s Parish is a vibrant community of believers, and I have always felt very fortunate and blessed to be a part of this community.

I earned a BA from the University of South Dakota in Elementary Education, an MA in Special Education from the University of St. Thomas, and a K-12 Education Specialist Degree from the University of St. Thomas. I also hold an MA in Pastoral Studies from the St. Mary’s University of Minnesota, Winona and a BA from the University of Ravishanker MP, India.

I enjoy teaching and sharing my faith with children. I love my vocation as a teaching Sister, and I have been immensely blessed. St. John’s is my second home, and I am extremely grateful to God and to the parish community for the wonderful ways I have been supported through the years. God is good at all times! May God continue to bless our parish and school.

I enjoy cooking, gardening, and traveling. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many US states and to several countries in Europe. I have also been blessed to get blessings from two Saints: St. John Paul II and St. Mother Theresa of Calcutta while they were alive.
