Sister Joyce Ann Hertzig, OP
Sister Joyce Ann Hertzig's early teaching ministry in Saginaw, St. Joseph-Sacred Heart allowed her to experience cooperative efforts of African American, Hispanic, and Anglo students and families. Through study, action, and conscience raising discussions, seeds of justice were planted. Issues of poverty, racism, and the cost of war propelled her to search for ways to be in solidarity with the ONE human family.
Working with teachers and curriculum in Catholic Schools – Mobile Alabama Archdiocese; supporting Parish Social Ministry – Atlanta Georgia Archdiocese; promoting the Bishop’s Justice for Immigrants and Catholic Campaign for Human Development were opportunities for Sister Joyce Ann to preach justice. Engaging others created a strong voice for those with none.
After serving on the Dominican Sisters leadership team, Sister Joyce Ann is now a professional tutor with adult immigrants.
