Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth Release Update About Sisters in Accident


The Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth have released an official statement and update regarding the four sisters who were involved in an auto accident on Sunday.

The statement reads:

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and your kindness this week. Our Sisters in Philadelphia who were involved in the vehicle accident on Sunday have each given permission today for us to share her name with our friends of Nazareth.

We continue to ask for prayers for Sr. Boguslawa, Sr. Mary Anthony, Sr. Regina and Sr. John as they recover from their injuries.

As they convalesce, our injured Sisters have kindly asked for no visitors, please.

If you would like to send one or all of the Sisters a message, we have set up a special email address at [email protected]. Please include the Sister’s name in the subject line. We will make sure she receives it.

If you would prefer to mail a card or letter, you may send it to:
