Mary Helen Ward Dr

Elizabeth Corona

Mary Helen Ward was raised in Linwood, PA which is within a stone throw distance to both Delaware and New Jersey along the Delaware River. She attended Holy Saviour grammar school, Notre Dame High School, Chestnut Hill College, University of Scranton and Immaculate College – all fine Catholic Schools. She does admit to having attended one nonCatholic school, Temple University in Philadelphia, which at least sounds religious by calling itself “Temple.”

She entered the order of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Philadelphia one week after her 18th birthday. After learning how to eat (in the tradition of 17th century France,) pray (it was a convent after all) and love (God and others), she left the convent three months before her 30th birthday. This is her story of those memorable, funny, poignant, interesting and challenging years.
