Sister Sean William O’Brien, O. Carm/Mary Manning Walsh Home

Sister Sean William O’Brien O. Carm is Executive Director and daughter of immigrants from respectively, Donegal and Waterford, recently had the daunting task of overseeing the expansion of Mary Manning Walsh. The home will now include short-term rehab, hospice care, a TeliStat program for cardiac patients in addition to a renovation of its still-elegant building. While it’s now more than a nursing home Sister Sean promises, “The Walsh Home will always uphold the Carmelite philosophy of care and commitment.” ♦


The Carmelite Sisters of the Aged and Infirm minister to and care for the residents of Mary Manning Walsh Home, long considered the premium home for the elderly in New York City. Recognized for its superior medical care, Mary Manning Walsh is just as renown for its staff of nuns who believe the end of life should be about living, not just surviving—these sisters have dedicated themselves to their patients most of whom are ill and many, alone.
