Judy Raley, SCN, vice president of mission at Memorial Health Care System, Chattanooga, Tenn., was elected to serve as provincial of the Western Province of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Sister Judy began the five-year appointment on June 1. “Being provincial is somewhat equivalent to being chief executive officer of an organization,” said Sister Judy. “I will be responsible to direct the mission and ministries of the nearly 400 sisters in the U.S. Province. I feel honored to be chosen for this sacred responsibility, but it will be hard to leave the work I love at Memorial and my many friends in Chattanooga.”
