Catholic Nuns Return Home after Serving Scott Co., VA for 28 Years


Sister Janice Koziolek and
Sister Maria Exner

Scott County, Virginia, said thank you and farewell to Sister Maria Exner and Sister Janice Koziolek July 2, after 28 years of devoted service to the people of this area. Sister Janice joined the School Sisters of Notre Dame of the Mankato Province in 1941, and Sister Maria joined the same organization in 1946. The two are members of an organization of more than 4,400 vowed women within the Catholic Church whose mission is “to promote justice and educate with the conviction that the world can be changed through the transformation of persons.”

Before coming to Scott County in 1978, Sister Janice taught in Catholic schools for 35 years, mainly in Minnesota and Iowa. Sister Maria also taught school for 30 years in Minnesota and in the state of Washington. [snip] Scott County Star
