By now, it is well known that the Benedictine Sisters will soon be leaving St. Marys. While their story in St. Marys is drawing to a close, how it began and the legacy they left will always be a part of the community's history. Much of their early story was documented by historian Charlie Schaut in his book 'History of St. Marys: The Formative Years,' which was published in 1968.
