History Moment: Sisters Going on Mission

This month on the 30th we celebrate our 98th Foundation Day which is the anniversary of the founding of the Medical Mission Sisters. Throughout this month we'll be sharing a few moments of our history. This photo shows Mother M. Benedict, M.D., congratulating three departees who were leaving for their first mission assignments shortly after the New Year in 1961.
