Always an adventure at Christmas

Sister Mary Alberta’s big Catholic family enjoyed gathering at her grandparents’ house for the Christmas festivities. Her memories include attending midnight Mass, and the rhythms of a house brimming with playful cousins, aromatic treats, and epic family stories. Here she shares a special family Christmas memory. Don’t miss it!
It was just this family atmosphere in Sister Alberta’s home that led her and her sister, Sister M. Rene, to choose life as consecrated religious women. Sister Alberta’s passion was education and learning—and she’s never stopped! Now in her 90s she still works several days a week in the mission advancement office at Sacred Heart-Griffin High School, where she takes great pride in her database skills.
Though Sister Rene died in 2016, she was among the first of our sisters to open our mission in Peru in 1965, where she served for more than 30 years.
A gift from you this Christmas season will support Sister M. Alberta and all of our senior sisters who have given so much to so many for so long. Can we count on you?
Thank you!
