Today, November 11, 2012, the Province of USA & Canada welcomed Sister Luke Parker as our newly appointed Provincial.  Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Sister Luke entered the community in 1964 and spent many years in education in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and Torrance, California.  During the last nine years Sister Luke served as Vice Provincial of the Province. 

November 11th is a significant day in the Congregation celebrating one of our Patrons, Saint Martin of Tours and the baptism day of our Foundress, Blessed Anne Marie Javouhey.

Sister Luke follows Sister Joan Van der Zyden who has served the Province as Provincial since November, 2003.  We are grateful to Sister Joan for her leadership of the Province and hold her in prayer as she now transitions to her new role as General Councilor of the Congregation.
