Sr. Rosemary came to Glenmary from White Oak near Cincinnati, Ohio. Shortly after her entrance, she served as secretary to Fr. Bishop, founder of Glenmary. Sister has served in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia. Much time also has been given to administrative and formation positions: Community President, Councilor, and at different times Director of Novices, Candidates, Temporary Professed Sisters, and Education. She also served as Community Archivist.
Sr. Rosemary learned much from her first mission experience in Appalachia, Virginia. She had been in the community several months when she was sent there. From that mission she learned Glenmary was needed! In her months of discerning if God was calling her to a lifetime commitment to religious life and mission service, she now knew she could not leave because Glenmary was needed. It became clear to her that God had called her to Glenmary. That connection has remained over 70 years. They have been years of revealing the closeness of God to her – years of grace. Sister now resides at the Mother House in Owensboro, Ky., where she devotes her time to prayer for the missions and reading.
