Recently the 13th Street Community had the joy of hosting Sr. Yudith Pereira, RJM, for a long weekend. Yudith, from the Province of Spain, is currently the Assistant Executive Director of the organization Solidarity with South Sudan. She was in the USA to meet with Sr. Joan Mumaw, who directs the not-for-profit US organization, Friends in Solidarity, that helps to support this work, an inter-Congregational enterprise that sponsors five communities presently ministering in South Sudan. Altogether, more than 260 Congregations are supporting this project.
Pictured with Yudith (who is 2nd from the left) are Srs. Rosemary Mangan, Mary Bourdon and Helen Scarry.
