With her passion for the needs of children and her strong opinions ,living in community was often times a challenge. She and two others — former member Jean Gish and Sister Rita Vaughan, asked the Provincial, Sister Ann Victoria Cruz, if they could move out of the established convent into a house or apartment. She gave consent but required that they find means of supporting themselves. All three found teaching jobs. Grace was employed by the Jefferson County Public School system.

The children came to school with injuries and often times hungry, Often times the children lived out the chaos in their lives by having violent reaction to situations. After two years of observing and lamenting the regrettable lives of the children and their parents, Grace took and passed the qualifying test for social work from the Department of Human Services This was the process then.

The three persons with the highest grades were automatically accepted.

She began the challenging task of visiting the homes of students and attempting to assist parents in improving their own lives and those of the children. Sister Grace has many a painful and startling story to tell of these five and a half years.

This school had the good fortunate to reopen in as a Jubilee School. Thomas University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her pastor there was the well- known and well- loved Fr. Milton Guthrie. When Fr.

The school was not yet built; the parishioners were people with financial means, highly educated and professional; nearby there was St. By the time the first part of the building was built we had a very active PTO and had raised enough funds to purchase the furniture of the school and the books. Guthrie was very supportive of having a Catholic school. He also wanted SCNs to give it a good foundation and a religious presence for its beginning. Wisely, the school began with the lower grades and it was four years before there were plans for expansion into middle and upper grades.

During her four years at Our Lady of Perpetual School Grace did her best to provide the children with as many advantages as possible. They opened a modern computer center and a modern media center, among other benefits to the children.
