On Tuesday OSF Saint Mary’s Medical Center celebrated 100 years of service to Galesburg, IL and the surrounding communities. 14 of us Sisters(including all 7 of us from the House of Formation) traveled to Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Galesburg for Mass and a reception in celebration of this most special event. Bishop Daniel R. Jenky, CSC was the main celebrant. The history of OSF St. Mary’s Medical Center can be found here. And The Catholic Post was there to celebrate with us.

The Lord has blessed us with a sacred mission to “nurse the sick with the greatest care and love”(Words in quotations are from Mother M. Frances Krasse, our Foundress). We sincerely thank all our dedicated employees who help us to carry on this work as we look toward the future of our Community and of OSF Healthsystem.

    Hi Sr. Veronica, my mother gets the Catholic Post and I saw the story in there and along with the picture of SR. Stephanie and you which was good. Someone got you on the other end of the camera for a change. Take care, Ann

    Hello Ann,

    Yes, it was a surprise to have the photographer come up to us AFTER taking our picture to ask our names. 🙂 But, it’s ok I don’t mind. It was a blessing to be able to attend this special Mass and reception celebrating 100 years.

    God bless, Sister M. Veronica OSF
