End of An Era
On January 28, 2013, a ceremony of blessing and remembrance was held at Mount St. Joseph in Spokane, marking the closure of the health-care unit that had housed so many of the Sisters of Providence.

Participants included sisters, associates, Mount St. Joseph employees, current and former Provincial Administration staff, and friends.

In January, the last sister remaining at Mount St. Joseph, Sister Claire Bouffard, made the transition to St. Joseph Residence in Seattle. Her move came not long after ones for Sisters Jeannette Parent and Dorothy Zimny. While they have left their home in Spokane, they have rejoined other sisters who preceded them to the west side.
