Volunteers have traveled once more to Mayfield, Kentucky to assist families that were affected by the Dec. 10 tornadoes. Over the past three days, the volunteers have replaced a side porch and ceiling panels, cleaned debris, and installed vinyl siding for various families. Our Volunteer Program has collaborated with Catholic Charities of Owensboro in connecting us with affected families. The volunteers are staying at St. Jerome Youth House in Fancy Farm. Sister Therese Arru and Sister Louise Smith are preparing meals for the team, says Sister Luke Boiarski, director of the Lay Mission Volunteer Program.
Marie-Thérèse “Tess” Browne, SCN, received the Labor Guild’s Father Edward F. Boyle award this year for her ongoing work to bring equality and justice in the workplace.
