Please join us in celebrating the naming of the Plaza between Copley Library and the Learning Commons in honor of Sister Thea Bowman. In case of rain, the event will be held in the Town Square inside the Learning Commons.

Servant of God, Sister Thea Bowman, F.S.P.A., left an indelible mark on her community and on her Church. She lovingly taught young people about the joy of being Christian, she challenged her church to accept her as "fully black and fully Catholic", she embraced her suffering with a willing spirit and she called all to a living faith.

We unite ourselves with Christ’s redemptive work when we reconcile, when we make peace, when we share the good news that God is in our lives, when we reflect to our brothers and sisters God’s healing, God’s forgiveness, God’s unconditional love.” Sister Thea shared these words a few weeks before dying of cancer. These would be the final public words of a religious woman who dedicated her life to spreading the joy of the Gospel and promoting cultural awareness and racial reconciliation.

Everyone is welcome!
