                                           Site (“McMahon/Ryan”) in Syracuse. McMahon/Ryan, which opened in 2002, is an
                                           organization dedicated to ending child abuse through intervention and education. In the past, an
                                           abused child described the abuse to many different people, often enduring multiple interviews
                                           and being re-traumatized again and again. Child Advocacy Sites make the system -- law

                                           just that.

                                                   Bishop Ludden students and faculty have volunteered to help McMahon/Ryan in a

                                                   In June, McMahon/Ryan will be moving into the former Reid Hall building on East
                                           Fayette Street in Syracuse. The new facility will bring together the services needed by the

                                                began in 1984 when Mrs. Pietropaolo organized her first European trip following

                                                and most of the original travelers were able to travel then. In April 2011 another group

                                                The 2012 trip to Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France is already filling with eager students
                                                and their parents. Each year the trip visits different countries and cities but always ends
                                                in Paris - one of Mrs. P’s favorite cities in the world along with Venice and Lucerne. Mrs.P’s
                                                favorite thing about traveling with Ludden students is seeing their reactions and what
                                                they get out of visiting foreign countries - the kids make all the trips worthwhile!

                                                students there has been a request for an adult only trip. In July 2012 Mr. & Mrs. P will travel
                                                to Ireland and Scotland for this inaugural trip. Currently 24 reservations have been made
                                                and there is room for more adults. If you would like more information please contact Mrs. P

                                          Rachel’s big project now is to fund a school garden in on the of local elementary schools

      Rachel                              would like to try and build a canteen so that the local school children can eat lunch in school
                                          instead of walking up to two kilometers to get back and forth from school at lunchtime.
                                          Rachel decided to join the Peace Corps because she wanted to travel and to experience

                                          alumni to consider serving with the Corps. Also Rachel would like to encourage all of us to be
