Hosts Sisters of Charity

The Sisters enjoyed Mass and breakfast, and were given the opportunity to share informational materials regarding S. Blandina Segale with the parishioners and Sister’s great-nieces and great-nephews. S. Blandina, whose cause for canonization has been approved by the Vatican, founded San Antonio Church (located at Queen City Avenue and White Street in Cincinnati) with her sister, S. Justina Segale. Parish elders recalled the ways that Sisters Blandina and Justina helped the struggling Italian immigrants in the South Fairmount area of Cincinnati. They will never forget the many sacrifices the pair made for their families and the church. Parishioners and family are praying to and for Servant of God S. Blandina.
