Peaslee Neighborhood Center
Recognizes S. Terry Thorman
On Thursday, Nov. 6, Peaslee Neighborhood Center in Over-the-Rhine (Cincinnati) honored S. Terry Thorman with the Dream Builder Award for her dedication to Peaslee’s piano program. The award recognizes individuals whose energy, talents and heart are dedicated to the service of others. S. Terry began volunteering with the piano program in 1990, and (with the exception of a few years' absence) has been an integral part of it ever since. As one of her adult students, June Alexander, said, “She won't let you give up. She helps students find the music in her soul.”
"We must live in such harmony that what one does is pleasing to the other."

Community Welcomes Associates
Congratulations to Rev. John Amankwah and James Weber, who made their commitments as Associates in Mission on Sunday, Nov. 16 in the Motherhouse chapel. During the ceremony, each candidate, alongside his companion, was called forward to read his personal statement and make his formal request to the Community. Father John’s companion was S. Monica Lucas, and Jim’s was S. Janet Gildea. A reception and celebration followed in the Motherhouse Dining Room.
This week we commemorate the fidelity of the six Jesuits, along with their housekeeper and her daughter, who were violently killed on Nov. 16, 1989, on the campus of the Jesuit University of Central America. They, along with 70,000 persons, were killed during the violence that tore apart El Salvador. The Jesuits stood with the poor and oppressed of El Salvador, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Liberator. With their lay companions they made the ultimate sacrifice for God, for the Church and for their sisters and brothers.

Food for the Soul
The Sisters of Charity Art Collection contains many beautiful reproductions of masters’ artwork. Some of these paintings are hung in locations not frequented by many. In an effort to make this art more assessable, the Communications Office and the Archives began displaying one of these paintings in the Motherhouse Dining Room each month. Accompanying the art is an account of how it came to be in the art collection, a brief history of the art, and of the artist and his style. November's featured artwork is a statue of the Miraculous Mother. Click here to read more ...
