Responding to the needs of our times

(Spring 2012) -- We are often asked, "Where are the Sisters nowadays?" Our Sisters, six of whom are in their 90s, continue to joyfully live our mission which asks each of us to "compassionately respond to the needs of our times through education, healing and related ministries that uphold human dignity, pursue peace, and promote Gospel justice."

As you can see on these two pages, our Sisters and Associates are active in a variety of ministries. We are eternally grateful to God for the gift of serving! It is a joy and priviledge to "wash the feet" of others.

Stay in touch -- This story originally appeared in the Sisters' newsletter. Subscribe to our FREE printed newsletter (issued five times a year) and our FREE e-spiritual reflections (weekly). We enjoy hearing from you so visit our “Send a Greeting to Sister” page and say hello. Thank you and God bless!

'Say hello to Sister for me'


You write me notes, "say hello to Sister…" which I am happy to do. Here are four Sisters you may want to send your own personal greeting. At this time Sister Louise Hunt, Sister Alice Mae Malliet, Sister Mary Grace Peters and Sister Mary Audri Tlachac are receiving long-term care in local nursing homes. We know they would be happy to hear from their friends and former students. If you would like to send them a card or note, send it to my attention and I will hand deliver it for you.

We are grateful for the professional and compassionate care our Sisters receive and for the many ways we can remain involved in their daily lives.

Thank you and God bless!
