My school

Marylhurst University was founded by some Catholic sisters who traveled from the other side of the continent for the sake of education. It's a very impressive and inspiring story, and I wanted to share a little video about it in case anyone is interested.

FYI, the other school the sisters started (I think it's called St. Mary's Academy?) is on the same bus line as Marylhurst. Funny coincidence, I think. ;)

Extremely interesting. These were some nuns with purpose, weren't they? Their travels would make pioneer movie (in a historical sense of course). It kind of reminds me of Elli's Island.

Oh yes, they definitely had a purpose. I'm still amazed when I think about what they did.
