NUNDAY Franciscan and artist Sister Jane Mary Sorosiak

Blog Published: June 10, 2013

Monday is NUNDAY! And today we have a local nun from Sylvania, Ohio, right by us in Toledo! Sister Jane Mary Sorosiak, OSF, is a Sister of Saint Francis and an artist. She currently ministers at Alverno Art Studio near Lourdes University. Sister Jane Mary was recently featured in The Eagle, the newspaper of Bryan, Texas, following the installation of her artwork at a local hospital. The article "Nun Shares Faith Through Custom Murals" by Jordan Overturf (June 9, 2013) covers the assembly and unveiling of the new ceramic murals and also a bit about the artist herself.
