Sisters Return to El Salvador
Sisters Christine Rody and Irene Mraz traveled to El Salvador this month to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cleveland mission there. A Mass of Thanksgiving was held in the city of La Libertad, recognizing the names and places where the individuals served. The Cleveland mission began after an appeal from Pope St. John XXIII that North American dioceses support their Latin American sisters and brothers. S. Christine volunteered for the Cleveland Mission in El Salvador from 1975-1981 and S. Irene from 1981-1986. It was a joy for both women to return to see many friends and reconnect with places of importance from their years of ministry there.

Food for the Soul
The Sisters of Charity Art Collection contains many beautiful reproductions of masters’ artwork. Some of these paintings are hung in locations not frequented by many. In an effort to make this art more assessable, the Communications Office and the Archives began displaying one of these paintings in the Motherhouse Dining Room each month. Accompanying the painting is an account of how it came to be in the art collection, a brief history of the painting, and of the artist and his style. July's featured artist is Joseph Sibbel.
