Sister Jacinta Conlon was born in 1923 in New Brunswick, Canada. She worked as a registered nurse before she entered our Community in 1958. After her First Vows in 1961, she was missioned to Holy Family Hospital (HFH), Mandar, India. In 1966, Sister went to Holy Family Hospital, Bombay, to study midwifery. When she returned to HFH Mandar, she taught in the nursing school and worked as a staff nurse until 1975. After a short time serving the sick in a nursing home in Ottawa, Sister participated in the care of our Founder Anna Dengel in Rome. When she returned to the U.S., Sister cared for our elderly Sisters in Philadelphia, then provided respite care in South Carolina and Florida for over 20 years. Since 2008, Sister Jacinta has lived in Philadelphia at our Community’s North American Headquarters where she volunteers in our Mission Development Center.
