We give thanks for Sister Veronica Ann Baxter (1928-2014), remembered for her innovative leadership of Marylhurst from 1974 to 1984, when the university transitioned to a co-educational college of lifelong learning.
The Rev. Trudy Bradley, Master of Divinity alum and former Marylhurst faculty member in the Department of Graduate Religious Studies, was remembered at the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon's Annual Community Awards & Celebration Dinner on April 25, 2013.
The premier ecumenical event of the year in the state brought together more than 400 members of diverse communities of faith and community partners.
Special posthumous recognition was given to two beloved ecumenical and interfaith leaders, Emily Gottfried and the Rev. Trudy Bradley, for their lifetime achievements in serving their communities and promoting inter-religious understanding. Rev. Bradley passed in September 2012 as a result of injuries suffered in a pedestrian accident.
Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon is a statewide association of Christian denominations — including Protestant, Roman Catholic and Orthodox bodies — congregations, ecumenical organizations and interfaith partners working together to improve the lives of Oregonians through community ministry programs, ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue, environmental ministry and public policy advocacy.
