Sister Margaret Kruse discusses human trafficking during a podcast that will be featured on “A Nun’s Life” Ministry’s website beginning on March 10, during Catholic Sisters Week (March 8-14). “A Nun’s Life” is an online source for and about Sisters, aimed at those who wish to learn more about the ministry and lifestyle of today’s Catholic women religious.
Sister Margaret spoke about her involvement with Sisters Program South in Milwaukee, a respite for women who have been trafficked or who are involved in prostitution. The Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi have been involved with the program for many years. Sister Margaret currently serves on the board of the organization.
Sister Margaret discusses the outreach of the staff at Sisters Program South and the tragic reality of life on the street for many of the women, who become involved with trafficking as early as 10 or 12 years of age. She also speaks about the efforts of the resident Sisters at St. Francis Convent who support the ministry through advocacy, through the knitting ministry that provides hats and scarves for the women, and by providing lunches and other meals for those in the program.
