Bernadette Scala: “Will always be in my heart”

This Rooted for Tomorrow story was contributed by Bernadette Scala for the 175th anniversary of the Sisters of Providence arriving in Indiana.

I was taught by the Providence Order for 12 years and I have stayed connected with them since my cousin the late Sr. Norene entered the order over 60 years ago. I was lucky to have gone down to the woods many times and also had a teacher Sr. Mary Magdalen who taught me in high school. Sr.Mag as she was called was also my cousins very close friend of Sr. Norene and my whole family till she passed away . This event Saturday will always be in my heart. I will be returning next summer to see the shine with some of my family. The Providence Order will be in my prayers.
