Please describe an experience, class or teacher on the Hill that sparked a passion or interest that continues to this day.
Attendance at morning Mass before school was a quiet and profound time—to this day (with some variations over these six decades) it feels natural to spend early mornings taking time to meditate, study beloved spiritual teachings and pray. Am so very grateful for this life experience.
