National Public Radio Feature

Oblate Sisters of Providence

Oldest African-American Congregation

Received this link today and pass it on to you; a twelve minute feature in NPR interviewing two Oblate Sisters of Providence. This congregation is about to celebrate its 180th anniversary of service to the people of the United States. It was long overlooked in the general culture and even by the Catholic Church. They carried the burden of prejudice both as females and women of color. How well these sisters speak of their experience, faith, and dedication. One sister interview has spent 63 years in religious life. The other is a younger member who brought considerable education and professional experience when she responded to God's call to vowed life and service to the world. Here is the link:
