Sisters Deliver Donations to West Virginia Flood Victims
Sisters Mary Kriley, Karina Conrad, Wendolyn Lopez Santos and Agnes Vogel visited the Act II thrift store at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Gassaway, West Virginia, to deliver donations for the victims of the recent floods that have devastated homes and lives.
The worshipping community at Providence Heights and La Roche College in Pittsburgh donated blankets, sheets and toiletries to the small church store, which provides items free of charge in cases of natural disaster.
Sister Mary served the people of West Virginia for 13 years (1994–2007) as director of the thrift store, as well as the director of the food pantry at St. Michael’s Mission. Although formally retired, Sister Mary and other Sisters of Divine Providence travel about four times a year to the West Virginia community to deliver collected donations.
