Sr. Lucy Marindany, Vice President of Education & Childcare for St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care, will be honored by the Milwaukee Archdiocese’s Office for World Mission at their Women in Mission Virtual Event: Celebrating the Missionary Call of Women. The celebration will take place online, 1 to 3 p.m., on Sunday, April 25th.
The free event celebrates the global missionary contributions of women who are from or work in Southeastern Wisconsin. Sr. Lucy will receive The Rosemary Huddleston Being Present Award. Also being honored is Cynthia Jones-Nosacek, M.D., recipient of The Frances Cunningham Bridge Builder Award. These honorees were chosen for the 2020 Women in Mission Award, but the recognition ceremony was canceled due to the pandemic.
Sr. Lucy is a member of the Little Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi. She serves as president on the board of directors of The Little Sisters Angel Fund formed to support the needs of orphaned children in Kenya. This mission has funded construction of a new orphanage in Amukura, Kenya. Sr. Lucy is also the coordinator of the Little Sisters Education Fund which arranges sponsorship by American families of the education of children living in poverty in Uganda. In her role at St. Ann Center, Sr. Lucy oversees the early childhood education program including preschool, Early Head Start, before- and after-school programs and summer day camp.
Dr. Jones-Nosacek is being recognized for mission work she’s done through two Milwaukee parish twinning committees: Saints Peter and Paul Parish, which twins with Chiapas, Mexico, and Three Holy Women Parish, which twins with Padibe, Uganda.
In addition to receiving their awards, the honorees will give presentations about their mission experiences.
The Office for World Mission is a nonprofit organization supporting mission and promoting global education, connections and partnerships in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
