Medical Mission Sisters in North America celebrated the Diamond and Golden Jubilees of eight of our Sisters on August 15 at our Community’s North American Headquarters in Philadelphia. Celebrating the 60th anniversary of their First Vows were Sisters Joan Foley, Maria Hornung, Patrice McSweeney, Joan Marie Doud and Phyllis Backer. Sisters Judy MacDonell, Rosemary Ryan and Mary Kirkhoff celebrated their 50th anniversaries. Together, these Sisters have served 450 years among the sick and poor in Pakistan, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda, Malawi, Venezuela, England, Kenya and the United States.
