About our Presenter
Sister Deidre Byrne, P.O.S.C. is a member of the Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, a traditional religious order founded in 19th century Italy. She was previously an Army surgeon in Afghanistan.  Her order’s charism centers on prayer and Eucharistic Adoration. They serve the poor through an apostolate involving free healthcare for needy people in Washington D.C. Sister Dede (as she is affectionately known) also serves as superior of the Little Workers’ convent.  Sister Dede, whose brother is the Bishop of Springfield in Massachusetts, was born into a devout Catholic family of Georgetown-trained doctors.   After attending Virginia Tech for undergraduate study, Sister Dede graduated from Georgetown University Medical School where she later became the Chief Surgical Resident. Following an active duty and reserve career as a medical doctor in the U.S. Army, Sister Dede retired as a colonel and professed her final vows as a member of the Little Workers order in 2011.
