Fifth history video includes opening junior college for women and Motherhouse Chapel

Our fifth in a series of videos sharing the history of the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph encompasses the years 1918 to 1935. The video includes the deaths of Father Paul Joseph Volk and Mother Aloysius Willett, less than a year apart. The Sisters persevered through these sad moments with the leadership of Mother Agnes O’Flynn, Mother Teresita Thompson (pictured above) and Mother Gonzaga Cotter. The Sisters opened the Mount Saint Joseph Junior College for Women and the Motherhouse Chapel that still stands today. By 1935, they were serving in 46 schools. Enjoy this video.
