Who we are is defined somewhat by where we live. Emotional attachments to our neighborhoods are understandable because neighborhoods are where we put down our roots.

One of the things MoonTree Community’s early Focus Groups said repeatedly, prior to the razing of old MoonTree Lodge, was “save the ambience of the place.” Consequently, the new MoonTree Lodge architecture has a gabled barnlike appearance with timber-framed interior.

Citizens of the Year

Meg Distler & Minn Myint Nan Tin

citizens-of-yearWhen Burmese refugees arrive in Fort Wayne, the federal government provides a few months’ worth of meager assistance. But it typically takes three to five years to understand American culture, learn the language and become self-sufficient.

Many people have stepped forward to help refugees make Fort Wayne their home. But two people stand apart for their tireless dedication to helping Burmese refugees, and that is why Meg Distler and Minn Myint Nan Tin are The Journal Gazette’s Citizens of the Year.

Several years ago, leaders from beneficiary agencies of the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation went to Distler, the foundation’s executive director, and said, “We’ve got a problem.” The State Department had announced an increase in the number of Burmese refugees coming to Fort Wayne. The impending arrivals threatened to break resources already stretched thin.

Ancilla Domini Chapel

Join the Sisters and PHJC residents for a Taizé prayer service. All are welcome to attend.

Taizé prayer is meditative in character. Simple repetitive chants anchor the prayer time together and becomes a calming influence during this hectic pre-Christmas season. Songs of praise and thanksgiving frame readings from the Psalms and Scriptures. The focus is on songs that celebrate the Light of Christ. Therefore the symbols of darkness and light play an important part in this celebration.

A period of silence extends personal communion with God during the service and short petitions unite the assembly with the entire human family. For the history and other information about Taize click here.
