Sister Mary Caritas served as a missionary in the Philippines from 1964 to 1980, teaching in two elementary schools and serving as principal and business college director at Mercy High School in Iligan City. She was also on the staff at the Mercy Novitiate in Ozamiz City, where she helped raise money to open the Mercy Community Clinic for the poor, which grew into Mercy Community Hospital.
She once said of her time there: “I am awed by the growth and beauty of this ministry. I loved being in the Philippines. There was so much beauty in these poor people, who were grateful for anything you would do for them. They live such a simple life and are genuinely happy.” Returning home, she promoted mission work.Donate in memory of Sister Mary Caritas Quinn
