About Sister Mary:
Born in Phoenixville, PA, Sister Mary entered the Congregation of the Sisters Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1949 from St. Mary Parish, Phoenixville, PA and professed her vows in 1950. She taught in the elementary and secondary schools in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the Diocese of Allentown and in Peru and Chile. In 1968 Sister started her service to the Church as a Director of Religious Education beginning with Good Shepherd, Camp Hill; St. James, Falls Church; St. Agnes, Sellersville and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Hilltown. She retired to Camilla Hall in 2012. Sister Mary of the Sacred Heart Brignola, IHM, died in Camilla Hall on Thursday, April 4, 2017, in the 68th year of her religious life. She was 86 years old. We dedicate this library in her memory for her service to our Parish and for her work with this library.
About the Library:
Our bookshelves have been filled by donations collected in the parish over several years. Our volunteer library staff worked to catalogue all of the books in an online library so you can browse anytime.
Donations may be placed in the large bin marked Donations located in the library room or contact the library for other options. The library accepts books and audio books.
New books may be donated in memory of a loved one, in thanksgiving, or to honor a special occasion. A special book label will be added to the book. Please email or call the library for more information.
