S. Kateri Maureen Koverman
Hosts Operation Babylift Reunion
A special group of individuals united at the Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse over the July 17 weekend to remember and reflect. The group were Vietnamese adults and a few of their parents directly involved in the 1975 Operation Babylift mission, the mass evacuation of children (ranging from babies to teenagers) from South Vietnam to the United States. Sister of Charity of Cincinnati Kateri Maureen Koverman brought the group together. Sister coordinated the evacuation of the Vietnamese children through Catholic Relief Services. The gathering comes 40 years after the initial mission, and offered prayer, reflection, and insight for those attending. Additional articles and interviews with S. Kateri and the families will follow in our SC publications.
