The Class of 2016 will present their findings from their Senior Capstone Projects during the Sister Stang Symposium on Thursday, April 14 at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. View the program for the Stang Symposium here.
The Sister Stang Symposium is named in honor of Sister Dorothy Stang, SNDdeN ‘49 whose work among the farmers in Brazil served to raise awareness of human dignity and justice for the poor and of sustaining the balance of the rain forest. On February 12, 2005, she was murdered in Anapu, Para, Brazil.
This is the third full year of implementation for the Senior Capstone Project. Throughout their four years at CJ, students have been researching, volunteering and connecting to a social justice movement that speaks to them. During senior year, they have gone into schools, businesses, government offices, and other organizations, learning about and teaching others how organized efforts can make differences in the community.
The Sister Stang Symposium will begin with a short presentation in the Mary, Our Lady of Victory Gym. After the opening prayer, Brother Raymond Fitz, SM, will deliver the keynote address. Guests will then choose three breakout sessions to attend and learn more about the various Capstone Projects.
