This year’s Founders’ Day celebration will take place Saturday, June 22 at 2:00 p.m. at the Chapel of the Divine Compassion.
This year marks the 133rd anniversary of the Founding. The Sisters of the Divine Compassion Congregation was founded in 1886 by Mother Mary Veronica and her spiritual advisor and guide, Monsignor Thomas S. Preston. On July 2, 1886, two postulants received the habit as Sisters of the Divine Compassion, and Sr. Mary de Chantal (Catharine Greene) pronounced her vows. With this ceremony the community was officially founded.
Filled with gratitude for a rich and graced history, and hope for a future full of promise, the Sisters, Associates and Companions of the Divine Compassion will gather with family and friends at the Chapel of the Divine Compassion to honor our Founders, celebrate our Sister and thank our donors and volunteers for their time, treasure and talent.
