A Voice for the Earth
Sister Pat Siemen, OP, JD

Serving as a voice to recognize the inherent rights of all creation has become Sister Pat’s primary work as director of the Center for Earth Jurisprudence at the Barry University School of Law.

A civil attorney who holds a juris doctorate from Northeastern University, Sister Pat’s early ministries included being a community organizer in rural Tennessee, where she assisted disenfranchised African-Americans, and working in parish ministry with the Latino community.

She has also been a legal services attorney for migrant workers in south Florida; a staff attorney for the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division, United States Department of Justice; and director of the Earth Ethics Institute at Miami Dade College.

I am very proud to have called you a friend in grade school at St Anthony’s in Helena. Sister Marie Bernadette is smiling from heaven.

It was so nice to see you again when I was visiting Helena this summer. I hope that we can keep in touch and I know that Sister Marie Bernadette is smiling from heaven.

You've come a long way Sister Pat. We your classmates are very proud of you.

Development of a highly anticipated minister sponsored school building has been finished up in Pakistan' heart Lahore. This school is being administrated by the Dominican sisters.

She deserves to be acknowledged. Sister Pat has also served in community organizing with the African-American community, in parish ministry with the Latino community and elementary education.
