On Monday, Jan. 16, four of us left Rochester to visit our Sisters of St. Joseph in Brazil. Sisters Marilyn Pray and Mary Lou Mitchell, members of the leadership team of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester, represented the congregation. I was continuing a series of triennial visits begun in 1981. My niece, Grace Early, traveled with me for the third time – as adviser, fashion consultant, bodyguard and friend. We were a day late leaving.
