This episode is a continuation of our journey with Sr Rita Steinhagen, CSJ. In this episode, we follow her journey in Latin America and her activism against the School of the Americas. To hear the first part of this story listen to the previous episode or visit SisterStory: https://www.sisterstory.org/story/community/bridge

It should be noted that Sr Rita also established the Stillwater House of Prayer, where other sisters can come relax, reflect, and re-energize their souls. Sr Rita along with Char Madigan helped found the St. Joseph’s House, now known as Hope Community.
