She has received numerous awards and recognitions from both the Church and government for the medical and pastoral advancements that she has brought to Taiwan.

“Celebrating in February with the other Religious Jubilarians at the Cathedral of Our Lady in Los Angeles was a blessing. The postponement of our community celebration has not dampened my gratitude to our Lord or the deep joy that I have for the gift of my vocation. I have so much to be grateful for. Let us pray for each other!”
