For more than 3 decades, Sr Ethel devoted her entire life towards uplifting the lives of the poor, the vulnerable and the marginalized. Where others saw squalor, filth and desperation, she saw the community of Missionvale for what they could be – she recognised a star in each one! She gave without hesitation, listened without judgement and loved unconditionally. From humble beginnings, she grew the Care Centre into a refuge from life’s harsh realities, and equipped local people to meet the community at the point of their need.
We have made a promise to Sr Ethel to continue building on the foundations she has put in place, and to do so while upholding the values of compassionate care, hope, dignity and love in everything we do.
