First sister candidates from United States

First members from the USA enter the Salvatorian Community

July 30, 1901 – Before a novitiate was established in Milwaukee, all Salvatorian postulants traveled to Rome to make their novitiate. Three candidates from Uniontown, Washington were the first Americans to enter the Milwaukee community: Elizabeth Kinzer (Sister Blanche), Katherine Broenneke (Sister Berchmanns), and Johanna Reichert who did not remain with the Salvatorian Community.  After attending Holy Angels Academy for two years, the three candidates left for Rome on June 13, 1903 to make their novitiate.
