Sister Beverly Hoffman, SCN, now living at the House of Charity in New Orleans, with Monica Gundler, SC and Patty Huffman, DC hosted students from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, this week. The students worked through, a Nonprofit in New Orleans that rebuilds homes devastated by natural disasters. This group of students worked on a family’s home that was flooded during Hurricane Ida.

The students shared prayer, meals, reflections, and fun with the Sisters each day. They also participated in two evening social justice programs from two Catholic parishes. By participating in listening sessions with people affected by unjust systems, they learned about incarceration and racism in Louisiana. Of course, a trip to New Orleans also means attending a St. Patrick’s Day parade!
