“As the foundress of CHI Saint Joseph Health, Mother Catherine Spalding is most deserving of this important recognition. At the mere age of 19, she rose to lead an order of religious women, whose legacy of service continues today with more than 600 members worldwide.
Mother Catherine’s legacy is today our legacy, and this society will provide forever gifts to continue her vision of providing compassionate, dedicated and innovative care.
The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth opened Saint Joseph Hospital in 1877 with a mission to provide compassionate care to the poor and underserved — a mission still carried out today. In 1951, the Sisters also opened Flaget Memorial Hospital in Bardstown.”
Belize Sister Recognized for Helping Students
Sister Kerry Rowland, SCH, who lives in Belize City, along with Sister Carlette Gentle, SCN, was awarded a certificate of appreciation from St. Martin De Porres School.
The creation of the Mother Catherine Legacy fund is very significant – especially with its emphasis on funding integrative care. The Barnes are truly an inspiration.
