In honor of the 10th anniversary of the martyrdom of Sister Dorothy Stang, SNDdeN (February 12, 2005), the Parents’ Association co-sponsored a one-act play performed by Sister Nancy Murray, an Adrian Dominican sister-actress (sister of actor Bill Murray). The performance chronicled Sister Dorothy’s work as a fierce advocate for the rural peasant of Anapu and defender of a sustainable development project for the Amazon forest. Sister Dorothy had lived in the Brazilian town for nearly four decades crusading for the poor families in the small South American town, who were exploited by criminal gangs who were after their plots. The students enjoyed Sister Nancy’s depiction of Sister Dorothy’s outspoken efforts on behalf of the people and the environment, which eventually cost her life as she was brutally gunned down on an isolated road.
