Sisterhood of the Traveling Scarf

By Gloria Dodd

This March, scarves are connecting about 100 University of Dayton women students, faculty, and staff across campus. Each woman spends a day with the scarf before meeting another woman and sharing the scarf with her. After this exchange, each woman reflects on her experience. This is the fourth post in a series.

The traveling scarf came to me a day late since the woman ahead of me was out of the office on the exchange day, and was passed on to the next woman a day late because she was out sick on the exchange day. It seemed providential because my scarf day was the day of the memorial service for my director and friend, Fr. Fancois Rossier. The scarf I got this time was black and silver, which was appropriate for such a somber event.

The next day it was a blessing to exchange the scarf with Lisa Krug, who works in a different building. We had never met but she was kind enough to come over to my building to see the art exhibit of the Marian Library on its last day here, and to have lunch with me at the Jury Box. I enjoyed meeting her and gaining a new friend, all because of a scarf. Thank you and God bless you!
