The Sisters of Divine Providence announce that Sister Myra Rodgers, CDP, will serve as Interim President of Sacred Heart School in Kingston, Massachusetts. Sacred Heart was founded in 1947 by the Sisters of Divine Providence as a private, Catholic, co-educational school for students from kindergarten through grade 12.
