Our Sincere Condolences

by cbs.socialmedia

Our sincere condolences go out to all the family, friends, colleagues and loved ones who knew Sister Paula Merrill, SCN and Sister Margaret Held, SSSF, whose mission to assist and nurse the poor was horribly disrupted this week.

We, at Christian Brothers Services, continue to pray for the sisters, their congregations, families and for the many people whom these sisters served over the years in their work as nurse practitioners.

Sister Paula Merrill’s congregation, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, is a member of the Christian Brothers Services Risk Pooling Trust. Both Sister Paula, and her longtime friend and partner in ministry, Sister Margaret, were caring nurse practitioners who helped the poor in rural Mississippi, and treated thousands of patients a year at the Lexington Medical Clinic, regardless of their ability to pay.

Please keep Sister Paula, Sister Margaret, and their families and loved ones in your prayers.
