S. Marge Wissman was honored with the Peacemaker Award at the Franciscan Federation Conference in June. S. Marge has been a prophetic voice to and for our Sisters as she has served as Director of our Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation office.
In addition to her role within our Community she has served as chair of the Franciscan Federation Justice group in facilitating the writing of resolutions and is a member of LCWR Region 7 Justice Promoters. She has been a prophetic voice for justice issues in our geographical area by responding to invitations to speak at nearby parishes.
As S. Marge prepares to retire from her current ministry, she will serve the Community in other ways as she ministers as Resource Advocate through the Batesville Area Ministerial Association. In this new role she will be assisting individuals and families in connecting with resource agencies to help them manage their lives and finances so to reduce or eliminate their dependence upon assistance.
