| 2017 | April was a watershed month this year. Sr. Maxine, along with members of the OMI Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation Committee, participated in the People’s Climate March in Washington D.C. on Trump’s 100th day in office. They joined 100,000 people concerned about our planet. Closer to home, Seniors from Marquette High School spent two days donating their service to remove honeysuckle, mulch the pollinator garden, and clean up the area around the St. Joseph statue. In June we hosted our second Pollinator Garden Concert Fundraiser. Held on the terraces, the lovely music was joined by great weather and one hundred happy participants. The Community Supported Garden welcomed Phil Beile, our new farmer, who had a successful year in the field. It was a year of much good momentum and action.
