(Editor's note: On May 4, 2009, Bishop Leonard Blair, of the Toledo Catholic Diocese issued a statement regarding Patricia Fuller and the Our Lady of America Center in Fostoria.)
Relevant excerpts from that statement are listed here:
"References have been made in promotional materials to The Our Lady of America center in Fostoria. However, it should be noted that the Diocese of Toledo has never been asked to give, nor has it given, any approbation or recognition to the center or its activities.
"References have also been made in promotional materials to "The Contemplative Sisters" of Our Lady of the Nativity Convent in Fostoria. It should be pointed out that there is no canonically recognized religious community connected with the center.
"There is one individual, Patricia Ann Fuller, who identifies herself as Sister Joseph Therese. She is not a member of a canonical institute of consecrated life, having been dismissed from the Society of the Precious Blood community in 1982 after she and two other sisters, now deceased, left the order to live their own contemplative way of life.
"Patricia Ann Fuller has met with Bishop Blair of Toledo and has assured him of her desire to act in full harmony with the Church."
