Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary THE FIVE YOUNG Irish women who left Dublin in 1830 to teach in America probably never realized the far-reaching effect their actions would produce. Under the guidance of Very Rev. Terence Donaghoe of Philadelphia, Mary Frances Clarke and her four companions began a religious community dedicated to teaching the youth of America and known as the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Philadelphia was only their beginning for the Sisters soon moved west- ward as far as the West Coast and Hawaii with the motherhouse situated in Dubuque, Iowa. Their work in this archdiocese includes Blanchet High School, Seattle (five Sisters on the faculty); St. George, St. 4ohn and Christ the King Schools in Seattle and St. Plus X in Mountlake Terrace. Eighty per cent of the 2,305 professed Sisters are engaged in teaching with th'e remaining 20 per cent either working as nurses and aides at Marian Hall in Dubuque where sick and aged Sisters are cared for, or helping with clerical or household duties. Pioneers In Pacific Northwest . . . THE PIONEERING spirit of the Sisters of Charity of Providence was present in 1856 when they established the first permanent school in the Northwest, now Providence Academy, in Fort Vancouver. The first hospital in the area, St. Joseph's, came two years later, also in Vancouver. II In 1961, the Sisters again pio- lie neered when they moved into Sisters of Charity of Providence Providence Heights College on Pine Lake near Issaquah. Provi- dence is the first College of Sis- ter Formation in the West and now has an enrollment of 250 Sisters. The Sisters of Providence also staff Providence Hospital, Se- attle; St. Michael School, Olym- pia; St. Peter Hospital, Olym- pia; St. John Hospital, Port Townsend ; Provid'ece Hospital, Everett; Holy Family School, Seattle; Ozanam Home, Tacoma; Sac- red Heart School, Tacoma; St. Peter Claver Interracial Center, Seattle; St. Luke Infirmary, Centralia; St. Joseph School, Vancouver; St. James School, Vancouver, and several of the Sisters are on the faculty of Blanchet High School in Seattle.
