Dorothy Stang Play

Nancy Murray – Dorothy StangA performance by Sr. Nancy Murray, OP, Rooted in Love is a one-woman performance based on the life of  Dorothy Stang, a sister of Notre Dame de Namur, who was murdered in 2005 for her work on behalf of the Amazon rainforest and the poor farmers who sought only to live there in peace.

“They have the sacrosanct right to aspire to a better life on land where they can live and work with dignity while respecting the environment.
I don’t want to flee, nor do I want to abandon the battle of these farmers who live without any protection in the forest.”
