Sister Mary June on the Radio

Today, public radio station WHRV 89.5’s “HearSay with Cathy Lewis” program aired a conversation with Sister Mary June Morin, who has worked at St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children for 50 years. This was a re-run of the audio portion of an interview with Sister that ran in May on WHRO-TV’s “What Matters,” a program also hosted by Cathy Lewis.

“I can think of few people who matter more, and who have mattered for many, many years, than Sister Mary June Morin, who is the last nun on the job at the St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children in Norfolk,” Lewis said today as she introduced the segment on today’s radio program.

Getting Ready for Her Closeup

Sister Mary June Morin has been featured in The Virginian-Pilot and in her hometown paper in Madawaska, Maine. Now, she’s headed to television.

Sister, who is celebrating 50 years with St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children, is going to be the focus of an upcoming episode of “What Matters,” a public affairs program on WHRO, the PBS station in Hampton Roads. (Stay tuned for an update when we find out when the episode is scheduled to air.)
Before sitting down in the studio today to be interviewed by host Cathy Lewis, Sister spent some time in the makeup chair. “I’ve been a makeup artist for 20 years,” Kim Wadsworth said as she worked. “This is the first time I’ve done makeup on a nun.”
