The Lessons of Sister Victoria

A look at life in the 50s...

 

by John Vogt - April 11, 2014

Gale Largey was a professor at Mansfield University where he taught for 35 years. He has also produced a number of documentaries including one on the famous Austin Dam disaster. This Sunday, April 13th, Gale is presenting a documentary titled The Lessons of Sister Victoria at the Deane Center in Wellsboro.

In the 50s and 60s these Catholic Sisters made a huge contribution in establishing and maintaining the moral fiber of our country. This helped set a standard for the world. America was considered good because of the character of her people. The Catholic nuns and sisters had tremendous influence in our country’s educational systems and left their mark for good.

We laugh and joke today about about how tough these sisters were, striking us with their steel rulers and the “whole Nun-zilla thing.” But the truth is, most of these orders were comprised of loving, caring and nurturing sisters in the Lord who dedicated their lives to preparing us for life. They taught us to do the right thing. They demonstrated for us a sacrificial life, committed to serve and care for others. They made it clear that we should never, ever tell a lie.

The Lessons of Sister Victoria: A Look at Life in the 50s will be presented this Sunday, April 13th, at 2:00 PM at the Deane Center in Wellsboro, PA. This presentation is free and open to the public.
