Medical Mission Sisters share the exciting news that our Sister Mary Em McGlone had her artistic talents recognized by the Pennsylvania Water Color Society.  One of her paintings was accepted into its highly competitive 37th Annual International Juried Exhibition.  She also received two awards at the Gallery reception for her painting, Bruges, a rendering of a street in Belgium.  After a professional career of nursing, Mary Em began painting images that evoke a sense of peace and centeredness to counteract the stressful effects of the constantly negative images in media.   To this end, she also shares the therapeutic value of art through watercolor classes and workshops.
