An Excerpt from the SCN Annals

Posted by Kelly McDaniels

September 13, 2023

The Sisters and lay employees at Mercy Hospital in Mount Vernon, Ohio had many heavy responsibilities, but they still found joy in the everyday. The hospital’s pet parakeet, Cedric, was usually a great source of that joy until one day in October 1952 when he decided to go on an adventure and worry his dear caretakers considerably!

Cedric the parakeet had the Sisters of Mercy Hospital worried until they were able to find him and bring him home!

We learn so much about the Sisters and the times they lived in through the Annals. Have you written your annals this year?

Annals are due to be submitted to the SCN Archival Center by September 30th. They can be emailed to Kelly McDaniels, Archivist, at kmcdaniels@scnky.org, mailed to the SCN Archival Center at P.O. Box 3000, Nazareth, KY 40048, or delivered in person – whatever is easiest for you! Please feel free to reach out to Kelly with any questions.
