Brief Encounter Leads to an Incredible Service Project

Sister Pat Worley, collecting shoes to be donated for water purification projects.

One day Amina Bejos, SCN, brought her freshmen girls class from Presentation Academy to the Nazareth Campus. It was during this visit that Pat Worley, SCN, met Brianna Daniels and a special friendship began.

Beyond their love for the New York Yankees, the two had even more in common when it came to helping others.

In a letter to Sister Pat, Brianna explained that she was leading her school's service project. She had met the director of EDGE Outreach, became excited about their global water purification program, and asked if the Congregation would like to help.

The project is to collect donated shoes which then serve two purposes. The shoes are exported to retailers in the developing world to be sold as affordable footwear for those who need them. Secondly, the money made is then used in Third World countries to build and maintain water purification systems.

Now Sister Pat is leading the Congregations side, gathering up support from many of the Sisters and others in the local St. Vincent de Paul Church community. The shoes keep coming in, over 500 pairs and counting. Enough to completely load the first van from EDGE to receive them.

Sister Pat says she sees this as having multiple positive effects for those involved. Water projects from money received in selling the shoes, boosting the local economies where the shoes are given a second life, and the people who end up with the shoes, some who may have never had them before, all benefit, after one student's and one Sister's encounter over lunch.

Presentation Spring Break Mission Trip

From: The Courier-Journal

For the fourth consecutive year, members of the Presentation Academy Mission Club, a group of students and adults, participated in an alternative spring break with a four-day mission trip to Appalachia.

They spent most of their time in Auxier, Ky., about 20 miles from Prestonsburg.

The projects they worked on included building two handicapped accessible ramps, restoring a kitchen floor and restoring two bathrooms for two different families. To participate in the trip, each student was required to raise $225. The money helped cover the cost of building materials used for the construction. Hand in Hand Ministries helped organize the trip.

The 18 Presentation students on the trip were senior Margaret Senn; juniors Emily Domhoff, Hannah McClain, Maggie Riddick, Celine Seger and Sylvia Witt; sophomores Shelby Burnett, Anna Cowley, Meredith Degner, Erin Evans, Courtney Jent, Kelly Schneider, Izzy Sherman and Olivia Wagner; and freshmen Morgen Combs, Virginia Kuchenbrod, Maggie Sullivan and Sarah Zoeller.

Four Presentation parents traveled with them: John Riddick, David Seger, Gerard Senn and James Witt. The group was led by Presentation teachers Jamie Beach, Debbie Hall and Gary Householder, and Presentation Board of Trustee members Mary Gene Frank and Sister Maria Vincent Brocato, SCN.
