The Sisters in Huntington
▪ Sr. Lena May, Vocation Director, attended the National Catholic Youth Conference, which drew 30 bishops and over 21,000 youth and youth ministers together for the Eucharist, presentations, dialogue, and fun. Our congregation was represented by a booth set up by Sr. Lena in the section for women religious vocations.
▪ At the beginning of this of Advent, the Sisters offered their prayers for the whole Congregation that all Sisters may experience the special graces and blessings of this season of joyful expectation.
In remembrance of the beloved dead, Srs. Mary Terence Wall, Annette Crnkovich, and Susanne Keszler attended the annual memorial service held a local Huntington Funeral Home in memory of those who had died during the current year. A time of fellowship followed after the prayer service at which Sr. Marguerite Crnkovich, who died earlier this year was remembered in a special way. At St. Joseph’s Hospital a spiritual tribute lead by Sr. Francesca Lowis was held on All Saints Day for all Pallottine Sisters who had ministered there, as well as all physicians and employees who cared for the patients during the past 90 years.
