fresh oysters, they travel to the coasts of France, Ireland, the Netherlands, the United States, and Canada.

Here in the US, they prefer to serve the Northern East Coast oysters.

They want nothing more than to let people enjoy eating their oysters. Sitting idly at home is not their style, so they came up with a delivery concept: Oysters2go!

COVER STORY

May 22 Marked the 125th Anniversary of the Opening of St. Francis Health Resort (Continued from Page 17)

HISTORICAL ROOTS The work of the founding sisters was started by a young German woman named Amalia Streitel who in 1883 founded the congregation of the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother, the Third Order of St. Francis, in Rome. Even as a child, Amalia, whose name in religion was Mother Frances Streitel, had cared for the less fortunate, accompanying her mother in delivering food and clothing to the poor and ailing. She wanted her new congregation to blend this active service to the needy with a spiritual life centered on contemplation. In the first years, her Sisters worked with orphans and the aged, but in time their primary missions became compassionate and loving care for the sick and suffering, and education for children. In early 1888, Mother Frances believed her community was ready to reach beyond the walls of Rome to the missions of America and she sent Sister Mary Scholastica Demer and Sister Mary Joachima Hornung as her fist missionaries to the United States. They were to find new work and resources for their congregation. The first assignment came from the Bishop of Wichita, KS who asked them to reopen an abandoned hospital. With nine of their Sisters,

Fall 2020

the two missionaries embarked on the massive undertaking, with little experience and less money. They endured harsh poverty and backbreaking labor, but they made the hospital they called St. Francis a success. Word of their work spread north to Wisconsin, where several parish priests encouraged the Sisters to open hospitals in their area: in Marshfield, Rhinelander, Tomahawk, Menominee and Oshkosh. It was there that a young German priest, Father Joseph Joch, entered their story. In 1891, he was appointed to give pastoral care and financial guidance to the Sisters in the Wisconsin area. In 1892, Father Joch returned to Germany for treatment for a health problem and discovered the Kneipp Water Cure, a system of convalescent care combining hydrotherapy with fresh air, exercise, rest and good nutrition. Enthusiastic about his own experience, he learned the Kneipp methods and brought his new expertise back to the Sisters. They agreed to try the system at the Marshfield hospital with the hope of helping their failing finances. The treatments were successful, but the medical model and alternate treatment were incompatible and the water cure was discontinued.
