On Saturday, October 25, 2014, the Star Tribune ran an  about our religious community’s presence in the heart of the city — spanning 25 years and leaning into the next two and half decades.

“Every neighborhood should have nuns in the hood!”

Journalists Joy Powell and photographer Leila Navidi captured our neighborhood and Sisters in a way that honors and reveals hope, love and reality. We are grateful for their narrative gifts and photographic eye.

We commend them for their journalistic integrity and again, say,
“thank you.”
