Gala 2018


Physicians Honored with 2018 Sisters of IHM Spirit Award

The deep connection between the founding of the Congregation of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) and the island of Haiti will be the focus of the 2018 IHM Sisters Celebration. The gala will recognize the humanitarian work in Haiti of two local physicians - Peter A. Cognetti and John H. Doherty, Jr. Doctors Cognetti and Doherty will receive the Sisters of IHM Spirit Award during the event on Saturday, August 4, at Marywood University.

Sisters of IHM Spirit Awards are given to deserving honorees, who by their lives and ministries exemplify the value of self-emptying service taught and embodied by the IHM Sisters. Dr. Doherty attended St. Clare School, Scranton, and Dr. Cognetti’s children attended Our Lady of Peace School, Clarks Green.

The 2018 Sisters Celebration will take place on Saturday, August 4, at 6 p.m. in the Nazareth Student Center on Marywood University’s campus. Tickets are $100. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are available also. Please call 570 346-5431 to check on availability.
