Back in Germany at Last

When the laws of the Kulturkampf lessened their demands, Mother Mary Chrysostom Heck prepared to return to Germany. On May 9, 1887, she left the United States to re-establish the congregational Motherhouse in Germany. In 1888 Mülhausen became the Center of the Congregation, while Cleveland was designated as the Provincial Motherhouse. At this time 264 professed Sisters of Notre Dame were active in the North American foundations, ministering in 42 affiliations in three different states.

    I must be so hard then and now to have to leave your homeland. Glad they could return.
