Two summer volunteers, Sean Sullivan (right) and Patrick Dooley (left), who are recent graduates from the University of New Haven in Connecticut, are living on campus and serving through the Lay Mission Volunteer Program. During the months of June and July they will be serving in Louisville helping with the renovation of a women’s shelter, in Chaplin and Beattyville, Kentucky, building a porch and ramp for individuals in need, and in Bellaire, Ohio, helping with the repainting of a school. When not helping with the volunteer program, Sean and Patrick will be volunteering their time with our grounds and maintenance departments. We are pleased that these two outstanding young men chose to spend their summer with us!
To celebrate 75 years in India, we will follow the journey of our Pioneer Sisters. Our story begins more than a year before the departure of our Sisters for India, with a letter written by Mother Ann Sebastian, dated May 7, 1946.
