I missed that announcement, but it is never too late to sing someone's praises.
Back in 1977 I was one of seven women who opened a Catholic Worker house for women and children. We had an old convent with a dozen or so bedrooms for guests and an attic where we built walls for community bedrooms. We had to clean and paint everything, beg a kitchen stove and beds, plan house management, raise money, etc. We were up to our ears in work.
The phone rang and I answered it. It was Sr. Mary Roch. "What can I do to help?" she asked.
