I need to think up harder ones...

This order teaches, nurses, runs a college, social work, CCD---they do everything. Although they are Franciscan, they have a different name. They were founded in Poland, as well!

This religious order, though not begun in Ireland, recognizes it's spirituality's foundress as the original foundress. It was established in 1973 in response to the renewal called for in the Second Vatican Council. The Sisters do work mostly in healthcare but also have a teaching apostolate.

No, it was answered up top by LaPetite. It was the Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, MI. ;)
