Throwback Thursday: Remembering Sister Mary Clare Fritsch
From time to time, we get requests from many people on social media inquiring about various Sisters of Providence. This Throwback Thursday is an example of that.
So, with that in mind, today, we take a look at the life of Sister Mary Clare Fritsch.
Sister Mary Clare was born in 1906, in Chicago, as Lucille Kathryn. She entered the Congregation in 1930, receiving the name Sister Mary Clare.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, and a master’s degree in zoology from Marquette University.
Sister Mary Clare taught in Evansville, Fort Wayne and Chicago. In addition, she taught at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College from 1946-49.
But it was her time at Immaculata High School – located in Washington D.C. – that sparked interest from our many social media friends.
