Commissioned to serve

As the separation of children from their parents continues so does the narrative that refugees and immigrants are criminals. Today Sister Susan Gatz was commissioned at Mass in Nazareth’s St. Vincent de Paul Church. She will be volunteering with Annunciation House in El Paso, Texas, where she will help them provide hospitality to the thousands of refugee and immigrant families each week that they serve.

Serving others

Mark and Cindy Rhonemus have been volunteering with the SCN Volunteer Mission Program since 2015. For their most recent trip to Las Flores, Belize, they raised all of the funds needed to complete a home for a family in need.
