MEET THE NEW SSMO LEADERSHIP

Virtual event via Zoom
Presenters: Sr. Michael Francine Duncan, Superior General, Sr. Denise Klaas, Sr. Sara Goggin, Sr. Rita Watkins

The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon convokes a General Chapter every five years.  The Chapter of March 2020 celebrated the election of the Superior General, Vicar and two General Counselors. 

We invite you to meet the new leadership of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon, Sr. Michael Francine Duncan, Sr. Denise Klaas, Sr. Sara Goggin and Sr. Rita Watkins.  Learn more about how God called them to Religious Life, their stories of ministry and the journey of their lives. 
In addition, the Sisters invite you to submit questions, those burning questions you always wanted to ask of a Religious Sister! 

Questions may be submitted in advance through the events manager, Caroline Fogarty, at [email protected], or during the webinar
