Special Invitation to Sister Joan Chittister from the Shriver Family

Sister Joan Chittister has been invited to participate in a ceremony honoring her friend, the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this month. A permanent Flame of Hope monument is being erected in Chicago on July 26, the location of the first international games in 1968. Prior to that event, the Kennedy family is lighting the eternal flame from the rays of the sun at the home of Joseph P. Kennedy home in Hyannis Port and then transporting it to Chicago. Sister Joan has been invited to participate in the intimate Hyannis Port event and at a special graveside service for Eunice Shriver that will pay tribute to her struggle for inclusion and acceptance of all people who are different.
