Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Associates in Arizona teamed up with Sisters in Phoenix Ministry Center this past March to celebrate National Catholic Sisters Week. But instead of throwing a party, Associates and Sisters brought beef, beans and tortillas, formed into an assembly line, and prepared burritos for elderly who are homeless living on the downtown streets of Phoenix. The process went so well that plans are already being made for a repeat effort next year.
