About Sister Tracey

Current ministry: bilingual community organizer for Faith in Indiana

Complete the sentence: My good friend says I’m … stubborn. (I call it perseverance.)

Three things that are sure to make me smile are … a good pun, a beautiful landscape, Trevor Noah

When I am not at work or involved in ministry, you are most likely to find me … in the great outdoors

I am passionate about … healthy food

One thing most people don’t know about me is … that I once jumped off a bridge because everyone else was doing it.

    The Sisters of Providence of 2018 are quite different from the Sisters of Providence who taught me for 13 years. I could recognize them back then. Now, I would be hard pressed to differentiate one from the next door neighbor.

    Sister Tracey
    My Prayers and thoughts are with you , I know that you will bring peace and joy
    to all that you serve. I hope sometime soon in the near future we can have a visit.
    I had Sisters of Providence back in the 1950.
    Please take care and may God Bless

    I do family genealogy in retirement and I have Horan’s in my family (through marriage). A third great uncle, Manus Gallagher, married Charles Farrell’s widow, Margret (Fanning) Farrell. Margret brought with her to the marriage a daughter, Mary Jane (b:12/23/1852). Mary Jane eventually grew up and married Michael Horan (3/1/1881). (This marriage also produced Mary Cecilia who became Mother Rose Angela who was the Mother Superior the Sisters of Providence from 1960 to 1966).

    Is Sister Tracey from this family and if so, would she be willing to share any family information?
    Thanks.
