Biographical history

The Sisters of St. Ann went to Akulurak in 1894 to staff a girls' boarding and day school in an Eskimo region around the Akulurak River. The Sisters of St. Ann left St. Joseph's Mission, Akulurak, in 1898. In 1905, the Ursuline Nuns replaced the Sisters of St. Ann. The mission, renamed St. Mary's, moved to Andreafski in the 1950s. A Sister of St. Ann worked with the Ursulines from 1974-1982. Other Sisters of St. Ann were pastoral ministers in the area (St. Mary's, Mountain Village, Pilot Station) from 1988-1991.
