Sr. Theresa Pham Awarded For Hurricane Work

With hurricane season starting in less than a month, it was nice to read this story in the Houstson Chronicle:

President Bush presented Sister Theresa Pham, provincial superior for the Vietnamese Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate Province [located in Houston, Texas], with the President's Volunteer Service Award at the White House.

"It's not for me personally but for the work the Sisters of Mary Immaculate Province have done for the victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita," she said. "I was receiving it on their behalf."
The sisters themselves became evacuees when they fled ahead of Hurricane Rita with seven Katrina evacuee families.

"They didn't know where to go, so we took them with us," Pham said.


Hopefully, there will be less deadly hurricanes this year.
