Congratulations Sr. Paula-Our Franciscan Federation Awardie
Sister Paula Nasenbeny is a woman of deep spirituality whose spirit is evident in her openness to change and growth as well as in her generosity in service to those in need.  Sister serves in a variety of capacities within and beyond community ministries.  Most notably Sister Paula has been working to educate our community members and high school students on the horrors of human trafficking.  In addition, she represents our community in Chicago Archdiocesan Peace and Justice concerns and has been working with others to help those whose immigration status needs to be changed.  She keeps our Sisters aware of current legislative initiatives and aids us in responding to and or working to influence the legislative changes that need to be made.  Sister has brought the plight of women to light for our Sisters through various initiatives on behalf of down-trodden women through her work on LCWR's Project Irene.  Sister also works as a tutor and mentor  to a number of our high school students whose confidence as well as success has been greatly increased through her influence and care.

Franciscan Mission Experience

From June 24th to June 27th, the Vocation Team held its first annual Franciscan Mission Experience.  During this week, several Sisters and students from Mt. Assisi Academy assisted at the Mantel, in The Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago, Feed My Starving Children, and Morningstar Mission in Joliet.  The highlight of the week was serving at the Lord's Lamb's Food Pantry and Sacred Heart Mission in Hopkins Park, IL.  Each evening prayers and supper took place at the House of Prayer.

 


Theology on Tap Comes to the Hill

 The Sunflower Room in Our Lady of the Angels Center was the site for the first Theology on Tap hosted by the Vocation Team.  Theology on Tap provides young adults in their 20's and 30's with an opportunity to gather and share their faith and life.  Weekly speakers included John Donahue-Grossman, Joe Paprocki, Terry Nelson-Johnson (pictured right) and Sr. Therese Ann Quigney.  The theme of this year's Theology on Tap was  "Living in Right Relationship with God, Self and Others."  Each week, 20 or more  young adults and the Sisters from the Vocation Team gather to share their insights with each other.
