Sr. Mary Jo is a nurse practitioner at a clinic in Washington, DC. The year before last, she returned from our Mother House in Paris (Chapel of the Miraculous Medal) where she served the community as a translater/interpreter for 6 years. Sr. Mary Jo had previously taught science and French at Elizabeth Seton High School in Bladensburg, MD. Sr. Mary Jo also served in Bolivia for a number of months when the community requested help following an earthquake there.
Sr. Ellen Eisenberger celebrates 50 years as a Daughter of Charity this year!! I am so blessed to be on mission with her at this time. She is a prayerful woman with a great sense of humor! Sr. Ellen has been an elementary school teacher and principal in various places on the east coast and she served as a hospital Vice President of Mission Services.
