Sister Pat Gootee Returns to the Border

Sister Pat Gootee Returns to the Border

Medical Mission Sisters and Associates in Philadelphia recently said “see you later” to Sister Pat Gootee, who has returned to the U.S. Mexico border to work with Central American migrants. For Sister Pat, who spent 40 years in Peru and speaks fluent Spanish, the work is very close to her heart. Earlier this year, she volunteered at Caritas in El Paso for three months. This time around she will join Sister Judy MacDonnell in Tucson, Arizona.
