Sister Brycelyn Eyler, the provincial councilor of the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, recently celebrated her 50th anniversary with the order.

Her Golden Jubilee was marked with a special Mass on July 14.

“Most of my ministry as a religious has been in Catholic schools. Even as a young child, I wanted to be a teacher. My call to religious life came through the sisters who taught me in both grade and high school,” said Eyler, who served as the first principal of Aquinas Academy in Greensburg.

She entered the Sisters of Charity from Sacred Heart Parish in Shadyside on Sept. 8, 1963.

Eyler is serving her second term as provincial councilor/vice president for the U.S. Province, a position to which she was first elected in 2007.

She is conference leader for the Caritas Christi Conference of the congregation and oversees buildings and grounds maintenance and technology operations for the Sisters of Charity.

Eyler previously served as a preschool/elementary school principal and middle school teacher for the Greensburg and Pittsburgh dioceses and the archdiocese of Baltimore.

In 1995, she was appointed as the first principal of Aquinas Academy, a merger of four schools.

Eyler held that position for 12 years.

The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill is an international apostolic congregation of women religious who serve in five countries, 10 U.S. dioceses and four U.S. archdioceses.

They minister primarily in education, health care, pastoral care and social services.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
