Five religious headed home

Sisters of Charity of the Immaculate Conception return to New Brunswick

Sister Margaret Vickers, SCIC

It will be goodbye Vancouver, hello St. John when five Sisters of Charity of the Immaculate Conception return to their order's motherhouse at the end of the September, says Sister Margaret Vickers, SCIC.

The sisters, who came to this area in 1929, built hospitals and residences and several schools. While five members of the order are leaving, four others will remain in the Vancouver Archdiocese.

A goodbye Mass and reception is planned for Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Holy Name of Jesus Church, 33rd and Cambie Street, near to the sisters' convent.
