In 1926, we sent our first missionary sisters to Hunan, China. In 1933, Sister Mary Mark Mullen joined that mission and later wrote a memoir of her experiences there.
Gathered Fragments, the professional journal of The Catholic Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania, has published the first installment of Beacon in the Dark, the fascinating and comprehensive memoir of Sister Mary Mark Mullen who chronicled her time as a missionary in China. Read the article.
Congratulations to Kathleen Washy, Archivist, who conducted the research, wrote the introductory article, and selected complementary photographs for the project.
