Sister Lisa commented, “It is a blessing to have parish members step forward and be willing leaders in the faith-life of the parish.  As a Benedictine Sister I am proud of Pat for sharing what she has learned and cultivated in the Shalom Program.  What a great extension of Benedictine spirituality.”[photos by Sister Lisa]
