She loved the congregation and cared for its material and spiritual growth. In her relations to the sisters she was loving, straightforward, and discerning. She knew how to evaluate and put to. use the accomplishments of each sister. She never degraded an individual, but rather tried to raise each one's spirit, come to her aid and cheer her up. M. RaphaelCatherine Buczynska was born December 23, 1879. She entered the Congregation October 18, 1900, and died December 23, 1956 (A. SMDM-C).
