to join one or more of the following events on Wednesday, February 26:
11:00am-11:45am Visit Mercy Education Project
Join Sister Simone in learning about Mercy Education Project's ministry of moving women and girls toward increased self-sufficiency. Mercy Education Project is at 1450 Howard Street.
12:00pm-1:30pm Join Mercy Education Project for Lunch
Spend time getting to know fellow NETWORK members and the community at Mercy Education Center over lunch. Space is limited and will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.
Note: Sister Simone will not be at the lunch for most of the time, as she will be with a small group visiting Cabrini Clinic, a free clinic for uninsured adults. Due to respect for patient privacy, we cannot open the Cabrini Clinic visit to a large group.
2:00pm-3:30pm Visit the Dominican Literacy Center
Join Sister Simone in listening to adult learners about how gaining literacy enriched themselves, their families, and their employers. The Dominican Literacy Center is at 11148 Harper Avenue.
Also, we wanted to make you aware of other events organized by our partners, where you can meet up with Sister Simone. On Tuesday, February 25 at 7:00pm, Sister Simone will speak on "Immigration Reform: The Journey for Justice Continues" at an event hosted by the Adrian Dominican Sisters at Siena Heights University. Also, on the evening of Wednesday, February 26, Sister Simone will offer a keynote address "The Reality of Poverty and Political Paralysis" at an event hosted by the Pontiac Area Vicariate and the Agape Community of Oakland University.
