Bishop celebrates Mass, visits sisters
Bishop Paul S. Coakley celebrated Mass in the historic Sacred Heart Chapel at the Motherhouse this morning, then joined the sisters for dinner before meeting with the Leadership Council early this afternoon.
During the Mass, Bishop Coakley made special mention of the Easter season and the beauty of the chapel that makes up the east end of the Motherhouse. The 40 or so sisters who live in the Motherhouse and most of those who live elsewhere in Concordia attended the service.
Before and during the dinner meal in the Motherhouse’s dining room, the bishop chatted with many of the sisters — some of whom he was meeting for the first time and a number he has known for years.
Joining the bishop at his table for dinner were Sisters Barbara Bader, Anne Martin Reinert, Mary Reiter and Marcia Allen, as well as Father Jack Schlaef, chaplain at the Motherhouse.

I was mindful of the visit of the Bishop at the Motherhouse and with the Leadership Council today. I am delighted and grateful to see the pictures and read the story just a few hours after the event. I know that there is more to “the story” as a dialogue continued after dinner. THANK YOU.
