A Healing Touch for All Who Suffer

There are only five Catholics in Tutwiler, Mississippi and Sister Anne Brooks, SNJM, D.O., is one of them. (The other four are also women religious.) After completing her Doctor of Osteopathy degree in 1982, Sister Brooks felt a call to serve the impoverished residents of the Mississippi Delta region. With the help of Catholic Extension donors, she opened the Tutwiler Clinic and began providing medical care along with her prayers. With 70% of her nearly 8,000 patients uninsured, Sister Brooks’ service is truly a labor of love. As a visible sign of the Church’s preferential option for the poor, Sister Brooks and her fellow sisters are bringing hope and healing to those who suffer in body and spirit.
