Sr. Francis Joseph (Rachel) Scarpello, R.A., former assistant director of the Faith-Justice Institute, passed away on Feb. 28, 2013. She was 93.
To all who knew her, she was a remarkable and very wise woman.
Sr. Francis organized the Outreach Lecture Series for the Faith-Justice Institute at SJU as a way to connect the University with the wider Philadelphia Catholic community. Saint Joseph’s renamed the series after her in 2011.
