The last Sister of Charity leaves Saint Patrick Convent, Roxbury, our first mission in the United States.
The convent will be closing at the end of May. In the midst of preparing and packing for her move on April 23, Sister Kathleen Carven fell on Good Friday. Sisters of Charity to the rescue! After Sister Maryanne Ruzzo organized a Zoom meeting to coordinate plans, a team of Sisters took over packing for the move from St. Pat’s and unpacking and preparing the apartment for Sister Kathleen. In addition to the group involved in the move, Sister Esther Plefka is preparing meals. We’re happy to report that her new apartment is ready and waiting for Sister Kathleen.
Moving assistants: Sisters Lillian Conroy, Carol Verville, Katherine McGrath, Kay Conroy, Pat McCarthy, Sally McLaughlin and Maureen Beale.
(We wore our masks all day – just off for a few seconds for the photo.)
