Fr. Ross extends his hand and a blessing to Sr. Mary Judith Averbeck and Marilyn Keller before their journey to the SND mission in Uganda. The blessing took place at a special Mass for sisters and associates.

Mass was particularly moving at St. Joseph Heights Chapel on August 20. Not only did Notre Dame Associates attend as part of a special gathering, but Sr. Mary Judith Averbeck and Marilyn Keller were given a blessing before their journey to the SND mission in Uganda.

On Wednesday, August 23, 2017 (until Thursday, August 24), Sr. Mary Judith will travel to the mission in Uganda after a three-month home visit. Traveling with her will be Marilyn Keller (Lawrenceburg, IN) and Micaela Dyson (Elyria, OH). After an application, interview, and orientation process, Marilyn and Micaela were invited by the East Africa Delegation and Covington Province to volunteer at the mission for 9 months and 12 months, respectively.

When we consider the love and good work our Associates and volunteers live and promote, it was fitting to close the August 20 Mass with the song "We Are Called."

"We are called to act with justice...we are called to love tenderly...we are called to serve one another...to walk humbly with God."
