Musings from a Catholic Evangelist – Blessed Pauline von Mallinckrodt

October 2, 2019

In the ninth of a multi-part series, Sister Geralyn, SCC, introduces us to Blessed Pauline von Mallinckrodt (June 3, 1817 - April 30 1881). In 1840, she began a kindergarten for children ages 2-6 whose parents were employed in local factories. In 1842, she also established a school for the blind. Thus, education became the primary work of the Congregation of the Sisters of Christian Charity that she founded in 1849. Learn more in this episode of “Musings from a Catholic Evangelist.”
