Transfer of St. Anthony

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson joined community leaders, hospital employees and officials on Sept. 18 to celebrate St. Anthony Medical Center's transfer of sponsorship from the St. Louis Archdiocese to Mercy. Archbishop Carlson compared it to a new creation, a marriage. He spoke and gave a blessing near the statue of St. Anthony at the medical center campus in south St. Louis County. "As Catholic ministries we must be one in our identity and care for our communities," Archbishop Carlson said. Mike McCurry, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Mercy and president of St. Anthony's, referred to the Franciscan Sisters of Germany who began their healing ministry in St. Louis in 1873 and all the men and women who have served alongside them at St. Anthony's. Sister Mary Roch Rocklage, RSM, Mercy Health Board liaison, recalled the legacy of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy and their love for the poor. "Today we're one, serving in unison the people of South County," said Lynn Britton, president and CEO of Mercy.
