Catherine Markey, a Benedictine Nun for over 60 years, has been the Archivist at the Benedictine Monastery in Forth Smith, Arkansas. Her lifelong wish to visit Ireland, the birthplace of her grandparents on both her mother’s and father’s side of the family, was granted by the Travel Fairy Godmother, travel expert Stephanie Abrams. Sister Catherine was accompanied by Kathleen Jarvis, a friend of the Sister, who brought Sister Catherine’s wish to Stephanie’s attention. In this photo, Kathleen memorializes the visit by snapping a photo of her while being photographed as well!
