Remembering Sister Dorothy Stang, SND

Five years!  Hard to believe that five years have come and gone since the terrible news of the murder of Sister Dorothy Stang, SND, emerged from the Amazon rainforest.    She was assassinated because of her courageous stance against the powerful logging interests in the Amazon.   The pursuit of justice for those responsible for her death continues to this day.

Today at Trinity, the Sisters of Notre Dame will conduct a program about Sister Dorothy starting at 1 pm in O’Connor Auditorium, followed by Mass at 4:30 pm.

I will expand upon this post in memory of Sister Dorothy following today’s program.

One Response to Remembering Sister Dorothy Stang, SND

  1. Vive Dorothy! We miss our Aunt more than we knew possible, but we pray for those who NEEDED her more. We pray for Brazilian leaders to do something about the injustice in Brazil, and our leaders here to support that and support curtailing the agribusiness that is killing the amazonian rainforest and its people.
