What's New
Sister Irene Munoz has worked to bring about change—particularly in the lives of immigrant and migrant women. Her mission is and always has been to show them that their voices and their lives are important and worth fighting for. Sister Irene was featured in the 2018 book “Amazing Iowa Women,” an illustrated guide to some of Iowa’s most extraordinary women. In March 2020, she received the Barbara Boatwright Lifetime Achievement Award at the Emerge Iowa DAWN awards. In August 2020, the USA TODAY Network recognized Sister Irene as one of 10 Women of the Century from the state of Iowa

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - Born in Great Falls, Montana on October 10, 1923 Virginia Bartholome had two brothers. A little over a month later, on November 23, Rosalia Riedel was born in Milford, Ohio. She had five brothers and one sister. Little did these two families know that Virginia and Rosalia would not only become sisters, but this year, they are honored as the two oldest Sisters of the Congregation of the Humility of Mary. This is what women who have given their lives to the service of others look like.

Indeed, I consider the sufferings of the present to be nothing compared with the glory that will be revealed in us.
