This February, as we celebrate Black History Month, it is important we recognize the contributions of Sisters Pat Haley and Julian Griffin, who were trailblazers in the Black Catholic movement.

Etched in Stone

Joe Masterson wanted to honor his aunt, Sister Theodora Thornsberry, by preserving her memory. He recovered a brick from the building she ministered for many years in and etched a memorial to her on it, which will be placed at Nazareth as a symbol of love and remembrance. The memorial brick serves as a tribute to Sister Theodora and a reminder of the rich history of the place she called home.
