LongeviQuest is delighted to share that Maria Helena Aguiar, the oldest living nun in Portugal, celebrated her 110th birthday. She is a Portuguese supercentenarian who is currently the second-oldest living person in the country.  

Maria Helene Aguiar was born on 2 November 1913 in Portuguese São Tomé and Príncipe. When she was three years old, she came to Portugal to live with a grandmother and an aunt in Braga. Three years later, she came to live in Lisbon with her parents. She then proceeded to enter the conservatory at age 15 or 16.

Maria Helena was a teacher at a school run by the Doroteias sisters in Viseu and then in Vila do Conde. Later on, she transferred to Porto to teach piano, an instrument she started playing when she was three years old, at the Colégio Nossa Senhora da Paz.  

Maria Helena Aguiar is currently residing at Colégio Nossa Senhora da Paz in Porto, Portugal.  

LongeviQuest sends our warmest regards to Sister Maria Helena in celebration of her 110th birthday.
