On Compassion in Memory of Sister Mary Nerny

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals.” Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity” Pema Chodron 

Join us as we commemorate our December Faith Roundtable to Sister Mary Nerny and her legacy of love, compassion, and justice.
For nearly 40 years, Sister Nerny worked tirelessly to support incarcerated women reintegrate and re-establish their lives in society. All are welcome!
