Sister Rosemary Endres, CSJ Receives Community Service Award from SICM


On December 4, Sister Rosemary Endres, CSJ, received a Community Service Award from the Schenectady Inner City Mission (SICM).

In the nomination, Sisters Ann Christi Brink and Linda Neil wrote:

“Sister Rosemary ministered on Hamilton Hill for 40 years, beginning as principal at the former St. Columba’s School. After the school closed, she worked as a parish minister at Sacred Heart-St. Columba’s Parish for several years. In this capacity she visited the people living on Hamilton Hill. She grew to know many of her neighbors and served them no matter their religious affiliation. Sacred Heart Rectory became a place where people enjoyed stopping in for coffee and conversation. She ended her active ministry as the director of the Sacred Heart Food Pantry, a satellite of the SICM pantry. In this capacity she and her volunteers worked … to ensure people received the food they needed … When we opened St. Joseph’s Place in 2014, Sister Rosemary acted as our mentor, introducing us to many of the people we now call friends and colleagues. Her wise advice and support helped us through our opening days. She continues to gift us with her prayer, presence and presents!”

Congratulations, Sister Rosemary! (in the center with Sister Ann Christi Brink (l) and Sister Linda Neil)
