Our Sisters in the Civil War
As we approach this Memorial Day weekend, we recall the many experienced Sisters of Charity nurses at St. John’s Hospital in Cincinnati, who were called upon to serve through the duration of the war. Throughout, S. Anthony O’Connell was regarded as the leading spirit of the Community and became known to the larger whole as “The Angel of the Battlefield”. READ FROM HER JOURNAL
Art and Writing Show
Congratulations to our Sisters participating in the LeadingAge Ohio South/Southwest Region’s Art and Writing Exhibition on May 25 at Berkeley Square Retirement Community (Hamilton, Ohio). Works of art and writing were submitted by residents and clients of LeadingAge Ohio organizations. S. Mary Fran Boyle received third place for her poem “Snowbound”.
As we approach the summer months, here’s a throwback to 2006. Sisters and former members visit with each other at a pool party and picnic during the June Gathering at the Motherhouse.
