This history of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Wichita tends quite simply to shape and preserve the principal events which marked the time from the organization of the Community in Abilene in 1888, to the establishment of the Motherhouse in Wichita in 1990. That the events are not striking as compared to those which are ordinarily common to historical narrative is very evident, and for reasons which are obvious. But it has seemed fitting at this time to dwell for a short space upon the history of the Community, in the hope that the written study may reveal the unwritten past. It is furthermore considered appropriate in order that the present may not forget the past, and that death or time be not allowed to further obliterate that which we would preserve.
