Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart

A religious congregation formed as an independent foundation at Philadelphia in 1921 by a group of nuns who were members of the Grey Nuns of the Cross. The congregation undertakes any good work, such as teaching and the direction of charitable institutions; it numbers 15 houses, including D'Youville College (Buffalo), schools and academies, hospitals, an orphanage, and a home for the aged in the archdioceses of Boston and Philadelphia, and the dioceses of Brooklyn, Buffalo, Trenton, and Ogdensburg. The mother-house is at Melrose Park, near Philadelphia. See also:
