Beth Patterson over at the Virtual Teahouse alerted me to this wonderful article at the ESPN website about Atlanta’s own Dominican sisters and their ministry, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cancer Hospice. Naturally, living in Atlanta I knew about OLPH (it’s been part of the Atlanta Catholic Community even longer than the Trappists have) but I’ve never been there so I didn’t realize how close it was to Turner Field — or how such a bond has emerged between the caregiving nuns and the baseball community. It’s a wonderful story: take the time to read it.
