Sr. Carmela and Sr. Meg Mission of Hope Fund
Sister Carmela Guito, ASC (1924-2004)
A native of Lancaster, Sr. Carmela entered the Congregation of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ in 1953. She spent many years of her religious life ministering at St. Anne’s, initially serving as Administrator in 1981 and then as CEO until her retirement in 2003. Beloved by all during her life, Sr. Carmela’s memory lives on in the mission and ministries that continue at St. Anne’s.
Sister Margaret Mary (Meg) Kopish, ASC (1947-2007)
A native of Fort Dodge, Iowa, Sr. Meg entered the Congregation of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ in 1968. Powerfully persuasive, Meg drew upon that gift at every possible opportunity. As Executive Director of ASC Health in 2003, she became deeply involved in St. Anne’s mission of quality care for all. Her keen vision and expertise enabled St. Anne’s to continue what Sr. Carmela began.
Over the years, the administration of St. Anne’s has always been concerned for residents who find themselves unable to meet the total cost of their care. Annually, our cost of charity care is well over $1 million. No resident is ever requested to leave, nor does a resident ever become aware of their financial plight.
To help support this worthy endeavor, St. Anne’s has established the Sister Carmela / Sister Meg Mission of Hope, named after two special Adorers who loved St. Anne’s with all their hearts. Your annual commitment will be a lasting tribute to their memory. All contributions will be invested in an ASC endowment fund so that the Mission of Hope will continue in perpetuity.
