Freed by Love,
Acting for Justice
In this issue of Salt, we share how the BVMs continue to fight for causes at the Heart of BVM, such as access to affordable healthcare, protecting whistleblowers, leaving behind a healthy planet, and fighting for justice with the National Farm Worker Ministry (NFWM). Read more about BVM representative, Associate Kimberly Emery and our long-term relationship with NFWM on p. 16.
Celebrating the Gifts
We Have Been Given
In this issue: The Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary adapt and thrive during the pandemic, use their gifts in ministry in ways that carry out the BVM core values, express gratitude to supporters and donors, and take strides to preserve BVM history.
Be Alert! Be Present! We Are Doing Something New!
Celebrating a combined 700 years of BVM life and mission during their Diamond Jubilee liturgy are (front to back) Helen Emerson, Joanna Rettenmeier, Jackie Rice, and Jean Marie Brady. Read more on pp. 14–15.
