St. Joseph Stringtown Parish recently celebrated 175 Years in the Jubilee of Mercy. As part of the celebration, they held a 5K Walk and Fun Run on Saturday, June 11th. The Centennial Committee decided the money raised would be split between two local organizations - Hospice of Southeastern Illinois and Birthright of Olney. Each organization received a check for $225.

   “We are so thankful that the Centennial Committee chose us for the donation,” stated Mackenzie Zuber, RN, BSN, Director of Home Care Services at RMH. “It is very much appreciated and will go toward services provided for our hospice patients.”
