Peace and Justice Activities: Benedictine Sisters of Florida
Here at Holy Name Monastery at St. Leo, Florida, we have been busy living our Corporate Commitment to “feed hungers”. On Thanksgiving Day we fed the hungers for food and fellowship of 350 persons. Some of these were meals delivered to the Spouse Abuse Center, Catholic Charities and the homebound. For two weeks we hosted lunches for Habitat For Humanity workers who were building houses in our area. Recognizing that many people hunger for respect and dignity we continue our lobbying efforts on issues such as the death penalty, immigration, and gun violence.
