A loss at St Benedict Education Center

SBEC volunteer Joan Vereb

“Be happy for this moment. This moment is our life,” wrote Omar Khayyam, Persian poet. German spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle offers, “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have.” This reality is evident in all our lives.   One recent expression of this is the death of Joan Vereb, volunteer at Saint Benedict Education Center, on July 9, 2022. Joan’s illness was quite brief. The news of her passing surprised and saddened those with whom she worked and the staff.
