Hurricane Isaac brings high school students together
Student preachers from two Dominican Sisters of Peace high schools recently came together in New Orleans. Students and retreat team leaders from the Academy of St. Agnes, Memphis travelled to New Orleans to help the victims of Hurricane Isaac, which hit the Gulf Coast in late August. After a long day of giving out food and cleaning out areas filled with debris, they enjoyed supper and conversation with the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Two of these sisters, Sister Pat Harvat and Sister Mary Jones, minister with the Dominican Sisters of Peace at St. Mary’s Dominican High School. Before heading back to Memphis, the students visited St. Mary’s and enjoyed breakfast with the student preachers, who then led a guided tour of the campus.
