I had a great time reconnecting with so many people and walking through the halls of McNick again. The paint colors may have changed and the Café may be new, but the faces and feelings felt like home." Kristina was a member of Kairos 1.

McNicholas theology teacher receives Spirit of Sister Dorothy Stang Award
McNicholas educator John Norman received one of the 2015 Spirit of Sister Dorothy Stang Awards for his work with the McNicholas social justice ministry over the past 35 years.
Norman began at McNicholas in the fall of 1980 as a theology teacher and social justice coordinator responsible for implementing the Sisters of St. Joseph of Medaille's focus on social justice in the McNicholas community. One year later, Norman started McNicholas' 35 year relationship with the Glenmary Home Missions by beginning an annual service trip to Eastern Kentucky and now Joppa, Tennessee. He also re-established a focus on student service, now community service, to the broader community with an emphasis on the most vulnerable members of our society. To continue reading click here.
