Upcoming Lecture:

Healing the Whole Person

Sr. Grace Miriam Usala, MS, MD, RSM

Saint Francis Xavier Home of Mercy in Tulsa, Oklahoma

 Wednesday, February 24, 2021; 7 pm to 9 pm

 

Divorced from religious practice and without a spiritual component, the healing process is incomplete. This is Sister Doctor Grace Miriam Usala’s conclusion as she reflects on her experience of helping COVID-19 patients in need of extra oxygen in a high-flow unit in the intensive care area. In this lecture, Sr. Grace will share her experience as both an internal medicine physician and a religious sister during these days of pandemic and provide suggestions of ways to remedy the situation.

 

Sr. Grace Miriam Usala, MS, MD, RSM, a Sister of Mercy of Alma, Michigan, holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Bryn Mawr College, an MD/MS from Georgetown University, where she also completed her internal medicine residency last year. During her medical training, she pursued clinical research and published in The Journal of the Endocrine Society and The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. She is currently assigned to Saint Francis Xavier Home of Mercy in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and works as a board-certified internal medicine physician in Muskogee, Oklahoma.

Teilhard petition:

Recently a group of scientists, who are interested in promoting Teilhard’s thought and spirituality, have prepared a petition to Pope Francis asking that he consider declaring Teilhard a Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church. We invite you to consider signing the petition. You can find the petition and more information about this by clicking here!
