Honoring 20 years In Ministry

Ursuline Sisters Hiv/Aids MinistryThe Ursuline Sisters’ HIV/AIDS Ministry is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The ministry is located at the Ursuline Sisters Motherhouse on Shields Road in Canfield.
It was 20 years ago when a few small ideas turned into a major undertaking to reach out to people living with HIV and AIDS.
Brigid Kennedy, program co-director, said Sister Kathleen Minchin and three other Ursuline sisters were talking one day about where Christ might be ministering in the world if he were physically on earth today. At the time, Sister Kathleen was the chaplain at St. Elizabeth Health Center, and all four women religious had experiences with people who had been treated poorly because of their HIV or AIDS status.
