Heritage word—“When we are rooted in God, we will be impelled from within to move out of our comfort zones and be prophetic risk-takers and healers, whose very presence and witness will challenged the oppressive and divisive powers in our society”
(Sister Mary Sujita, 9thSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
