S. Mary Catherine Faller

“There was just something different about the Sisters of Charity – a spirit that spoke to my heart,” Sister Mary Catherine Faller says of why she chose to enter the Sisters of Charity congregation when she was 18 years old. Now, she celebrates 50 years with the Community.

Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Sister Mary Catherine attended Annunciation grade school and Our Lady of Angels High School. It was in her education that she met two Sisters of Charity who inspired her to enter the Community in 1968. She began her years of ministry as a Home Economics teacher after receiving a bachelor’s degree from the College of Mount St. Joseph (now Mount St. Joseph University) in 1972. Sister Mary Catherine volunteered at Cincinnati Good Samaritan Hospital in the summer and there found her passion for working as a dietician. She went back to school and became a registered dietician in 1981.

Since then, she has worked in a variety of departments as a dietician, but her greatest satisfaction came from working for 12 years (1999-2011) at St. Joseph Home in Sharonville, Ohio, where she worked closely with individuals who had various mental and physical disabilities, which as she said, “was both challenging and rewarding,” but, “nowhere have I experienced God’s love at work more.”

Another important part of Sister Mary Catherine’s professional career has been Board service. She has served on the Board of Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton, St. Joseph Home, Seton High School, Bayley, and St. Joseph Orphanage. Currently, Sister serves on the Board of Bayley and is the Board chair of St. Joseph Orphanage in addition to being on several committees there. She also ministers as Hospitality Coordinator at the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse which is where she resides and is the chair of the Mission Integration/Quality Improvement Committee. 

Sister Mary Catherine’s enjoys nature photography which she says puts her in touch with a deep sense of God. She crochets baby blankets and hats for Good Samaritan Hospital, and is also a member of the Sisters of Charity Music Ministry.
