Sister Mildred (Mary Pierre) Ellebrach, CPPS

A funeral Mass was celebrated May 30 at St. Joseph Chapel at the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood Motherhouse in O’Fallon for Sister Mildred (Mary Pierre) Ellebracht, who taught for 20 years at Cardinal Glennon College and was noted for her work in the liturgical movement.

Sister Mildred, 93, died May 26 at St. Joseph Hospital West in Lake St. Louis after being diagnosed with pneumonia.

Born in Bridgeton, Sister Mildred attended Sacred Heart School in Florissant and then entered the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood. As a novice she received the name Sister Mary Pierre but in her later years returned to her baptismal name, Mildred.

She professed her vows in 1936. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Latin from St. Louis University; a master’s degree in Latin and a minor in Greek from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC; a master’s degree in Scripture and theology from St. Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Ind.; and a doctorate in Latin and liturgy from the Catholic University of Holland at Nijmegen in the Netherlands.
