August 25, 2019, Detroit – In her bittersweet, reflective final blog, Sister Nancyann Turner, OP, writes of the end of something very special in her life: her 20-year ministry at the Rosa Parks Children’s and Youth Program at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit. In those 20 years, Sister Nancyann has helped the children of inner city Detroit to find an outlet to their challenges through art; special family holiday activities such as baking Christmas cookies and dyeing Easter eggs; work in the soup kitchen’s garden; leadership development; and the Summer Peace Camp. Read Sister Nancyann’s farewell blog.
