SI of Wickenberg, AZ

Eileen Jackson visited the thrift store of SI of Wickenberg, AZ.  She was traveling with a childhood friend celebrating their 60th birthdays.  While walking through the thrift shop Eileen found only two numbers hanging on a wall - a 6 and a 0.  We carried the numbers with us for the remainder of our trip and took photos with them along the way.

Soroptimist in the House!

 

On a free day during a recent visit to Venice on business, I wandered into the Chiesa di San Moise and sat down in the second pew to soak in admire the intricately carved altarpiece.


















As I pulled out my camera, I noticed a gold toned plaque on the pew in front of me 


















and so I leaned forward to take a closer look, to my surprise


















 
Soroptimist was in the House right in the first row! 
 
 

 















If I would have had more time, I would have sought out our Soroptimist sisters of Venice. A shout to them with warm thanks for restoring that pew and making me feel at home. 

Congratulations on your upcoming 60th anniversary!

Sister Margaret Boyle - R.I.P.

The Sisters of the Presentation and the staff and ladies of The Dwelling Place are deeply saddened to share with you that Sister Margaret Boyle passed away on Tuesday, April 19. 

One month ago Sister Margaret was diagnosed with cancer. This diagnosis was unexpected and shocking and led to her death in just a few weeks. 

Sister Margaret was loved by the entire Dwelling Place community and will be greatly missed. Let's keep each other in thought and prayer as together we mourn this loss and honor the gift she was for us.
