Sr. Marjory Ann Baez, Visitatrix, Daughters of Charity, Province of the West, has been named a recipient of the 2013 Archbishop Alemany Award sponsored by the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology. Along with four other local women religious, Sr. Marjory Ann will be recognized due to her dedicated service to the Church and community for which her congregation was founded. The award is given to men and women in memory of Joseph Sadoc Alemany, OP, the first Archbishop of San Francisco. On August 18, 1852, at the invitation of Archbishop Alemany, the Daughters of Charity arrived in San Francisco from New York. Immediately they opened an orphanage and school and, later, an infirmary and home for infants. The award presentation will be held on April 6, 2013 at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption in San Francisco following a celebratory Mass, reception and dinner.
