'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Sister Brycelyn Eyler, the provincial councilor of the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, recently celebrated her 50th anniversary with the order.

Her Golden Jubilee was marked with a special Mass on July 14.

“Most of my ministry as a religious has been in Catholic schools. Even as a young child, I wanted to be a teacher. My call to religious life came through the sisters who taught me in both grade and high school,” said Eyler, who served as the first principal of Aquinas Academy in Greensburg.

She entered the Sisters of Charity from Sacred Heart Parish in Shadyside on Sept. 8, 1963.

Eyler is serving her second term as provincial councilor/vice president for the U.S. Province, a position to which she was first elected in 2007.

She is conference leader for the Caritas Christi Conference of the congregation and oversees buildings and grounds maintenance and technology operations for the Sisters of Charity.

Eyler previously served as a preschool/elementary school principal and middle school teacher for the Greensburg and Pittsburgh dioceses and the archdiocese of Baltimore.

In 1995, she was appointed as the first principal of Aquinas Academy, a merger of four schools.

Eyler held that position for 12 years.

The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill is an international apostolic congregation of women religious who serve in five countries, 10 U.S. dioceses and four U.S. archdioceses.

They minister primarily in education, health care, pastoral care and social services.
