February 12 marked the 15th anniversary of the death of Sr. Dorothy Stang. She dedicated her life & work to poor migrant farmers & the Amazon rainforests of Brazil. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur have dedicated 2020 to honor her legacy.
Let us pray,
God of goodness,
On the 15th anniversary of Sr. Dorothy Stang's martyrdom, we proudly join the global Notre Dame family to begin this year of remembrance and celebration. As we lift up Sr. Dot's legacy at various moments throughout the year, may we proclaim your goodness, embrace your people, and care for your creation.
St. Julie, pray for us. Sister Dorothy, pray for us.
Let us together say, Amen.
