Sister Lauren Weinandt has been requested to share her voice at Mayo Clinic on two recent occasions:
A quote was requested for the Mayo Clinic newsletter referencing the passing of Craig Smoldt: “The handshake between the Sisters and Mayo Clinic was kept alive by Craig Smoldt. He treated us with respect and integrity as he worked with us to restore our properties and with compassion as we face the challenges of age. So much of what he did was known by God alone. May his reward in heaven be great.” – Sister Lauren Weinandt[Craig Smoldt, who died on August 5, was often seen in the corridors of Assisi Heights. Among other things, he was instrumental in obtaining the statue of Francis for the Clare Reflection space, and arranging for its delivery from Italy to Assisi Heights.]
And then on Friday, September 9, Sister Lauren took part in the dedication ceremony of the new Nasseff Tower on the Mayo Clinic Hospital – Saint Marys Campus.
