Sheilah's Paris trip summary
The Little Sisters of the Assumption (LSA), who founded Pernet Family Health Service in Worcester and named the agency after their founder, Fr. Stephen Pernet, share the same mission- to strengthen families and serve the poor. The LSA are committed to their International Secretariat for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC).
The US Territory of the LSA appointed Sheilah Dooley, Executive Director of Pernet Family Health Service, as the first and only lay person to their International Secretariat for JPIC in 2009. She has been to Paris 14 times to work on the team of the International Secretariat for JPIC. From 2/2/17 to 2/8/17, Sheilah helped facilitate an international meeting with 18 countries, and over forty participants.
