Global Sisters Report: Sisters divesting their assets work to transform them into agents of change

HUNTINGTON, INDIANA — Thanks to years of preparation, the remaining members of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters were acceptant, and even hopeful, as they planned to transform their dwindling community in the years remaining until completion.

An assisted living and nursing facility recently built on their grounds in this town southwest of Fort Wayne is already home to some of the 35 sisters who are left. Much of the 100 acres of land had already been sold to a preservation trust.

But the fate of the nearly century-old motherhouse was bleak.

    Global Sisters Report…

    As I sometimes pass by Tara na Rí Wildlife Animal Hospital, near Navan, now desperately needing a new home, and then moments later drive past beautiful Dalgan Park, home of the Columban Missionaries, my mind, each time, wonders, “Is the answer on their doorstep, what if there is space in there to house these sick animals?”

    I would love to know if this is being considered by both concerned parties…

    Happy New Year to all.
