Historical Archives (The Congregation)
Working in the archives is really taking part in the preservation of our wonderful heritage. I regard it as sacred work which gives me insight into the early history of the Congregation and the lives of the Sisters who have gone before me and I never cease to be inspired by their dedication, single-mindedness, resourcefulness, and great love for the poor.
