And the PH Quiz Winners are...

Everyone loves a challenge, everyone enjoys good competition and everyone gets a boost by refreshing research skills and putting one’s memory to the test.

The proof is indeed in the pudding, and the response to our mini-challenge confirmed our thinking and provided an occasion to share happy memories and thoughts while searching for answers.

Two names were drawn from among the entries scoring 100% on the Quiz, and those individuals are Mrs. Venetia Scalo and Sister Clémence Croteau. 

Venetia ScaloSister CLemence CroteauVenetia, an Annhust graduate, lives in Redding, CT with her family while Sister Clémence resides at the Provincial House and helps out with transporting non-driver sisters to appointments, errands, etc.  Both winners have received hand-craftedted rosary beads blessed by Pope Francis and an invitation for lunch with the Sisters.
