Sister Ann Bernadette, a native Philadelphian, is the youngest of ten children. It was at Little Flower High School that she met several Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart and entered the congregation in 1944.
During her seventy-five years in religious life, she ministered in both the elementary and high school level. She went as far north as Buffalo, New York, and as far south as Atlanta, Georgia.
She served as Principal of Mother of Divine Providence School in King of Prussia before taking on a new and different ministry.
For more than twenty-five years, she was Secretary and later Administrative Assistant in the Chemistry Department at St. Joseph’s University. Aside from her clerical duties, she was friend and advisor to students and faculty alike.
After suffering physical difficulties, she was admitted to St. Joseph’s Manor in Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania, where she presently resides. Many of her sister Grey Nuns visit on a regular basis.
