Brown, Laura: - Sr. Laura Rhoderica Brown, FSP, loves her community's mission of evangelization. She has served God's people from coast to coast for over 30 years in their Pauline Book & Media centers and has conducted numerous JClub school book fairs in Catholic schools as well as parish exhibits. It is in helping people and in a special way children find the right book that draws them closer to Jesus that gives her life. She believes that the saints are powerful models in our secular world providing us and our children with real heroes. St. John Neumann became one of Sr. Laura's heroes during her six years of ministry in Philadelphia which led her to write Saint John Neumann: Missionary to Immigrants. She holds an MA in Theology & Pastoral Ministry from Franciscan University.
