NBC4 Story Celebrates Sister Mary Bader and St. Ann's Center

November 30, 2023

Breaking News! Last night, NBC4 Washington ran a #GivingTuesday story* highlighting Sister Mary Bader's impact at St. Ann's Center during her 18 years as CEO. (Watch here or click the link below.)

But as Sister Mary always says, the focus is not her leadership - but rather the team and the community who have powered St. Ann's mission ever since our founding in 1860.

"St. Ann's is like a magnet [for goodness]," Sister Mary says in the interview. "God has been good to St. Ann's... because of the goodness that is here."

Thank YOU for being part of that goodness! Through your love and care, you are part of St. Ann's ever-growing, 163-year story of helping women and children to heal from the past and write hopeful new futures.

- St. Ann's Center for Children, Youth and Families
