We are happy to share that Nancy Braceland, CSJ, and Casserly House http://www.casserlyhouse.org/ are featured an article by Neil Swidey in this Sunday’s Boston Globe Magazine.
Three people are featured: Fr. Walter Cuenin, Mark Mullaney, president of Voice of the Faithful, and Nancy. Nancy’s and Casserly House appear in the last segment of the article.
The Promise of Francis: The new pope has gotten worldwide attention with a dramatically different message.
Here’s an excerpt from the portion of article about Nancy and Casserly House:
SISTER NANCY BRACELAND leads me down her street and onto a winding path through a low-income apartment complex. A member of the Sisters of St. Joseph, she runs the congregation’s Casserly House, a three-decker in Roslindale. The wood-carved sign by the front door reads “Rooted in Boston. Open to the World.” Sister Nancy lives upstairs with two other nuns who have jobs elsewhere to help pay for the house. Working with volunteers and her fellow nuns, Sister Nancy ministers to the needs of the community. In the mornings, they run ESL and citizenship classes for adult immigrants out of Casserly’s first floor; in the afternoons, homework tutoring sessions for neighborhood kids. The Sisters of St. Joseph opened Casserly House in 2000, and by now Sister Nancy has become one of the most recognizable faces in the neighborhood.
