Love in Action: The Story of Project Outreach
Hear how one volunteer’s life changed when she was tricked by a dying nun.
Project Outreach was started by a Franciscan nun, Sister Elaine Wicks, to serve the poor in Fayette County, TN- historically one of the poorest counties in the nation. She served families in the community for 20 years before she left Memphis and later died of ovarian cancer. Come see a short documentary about Project Outreach and hear from Shona who carries on Sister Elaine’s work today.

About our Speaker
Shona is the combined product of a many “Jesus moments” beginning with a near drowning experience at 15, in the Gulf of Mexico. She quickly recognized that there was and is more to life than beach volleyball. A God given talent took her to the National Youth Symphony Orchestra in 1968, opening the door to a degree in Music Theory and Composition. The first week of June 1973 brought college graduation, conversion to Catholicism and marriage to Phil Moore, now Deacon Phil Moore of St. Brigid Parish in Memphis TN. Together they became Secular Franciscans and now have 3 sons and 3 grandsons.
