Sister Edel Quinn Othim


The grace of the Lord and His Love brought me to the Oregon, USA to continue witnessing  God's love, care and mercy to our Residents in Cardinal Otunga House. I'm Sr. Edel Quinn Othim and I was born in Kenya, from a family of 13 comprising of 10 girls and 3 boys.

Since 2016 I have served the elderly and sick in our Adult Foster Care Home in Bend, Oregon. It's a great opportunity to serve God in his people, sharing in their joys and pains. I have learned to live up to our motto, "To love and to serve". Equipped with CNA skills, along with confidence and love, I live each day  to serve our residents.

Sister Petronilla Baptista


Sincere gratitude to the Catholic Diocese of Baker for their love and support, both spiritually and materially, that has enabled Sister of Mary to extend their apostolate to Cardinal Otunga House.

It is my wish that the senior citizens of Cardinal Otunga House will find love and care from the Sisters of Mary.

I am proud to be associated with Cardinal Otunga House. May God bless all who make it possible for the Sisters to share their love and service. God bless all. God bless Cardinal Otunga House.
