A person called to care

A person called to care

Dr. Audrey Evans shares her story of caring and faith.

During a lifetime of work, she reduced mortality rates by 50% for neuroblastoma patients and founded the first Ronald McDonald House. At 92, she “still has the ability to do something for the benefit of humanity.”

Dr. Evans is also a member of St. James Episcopal Church, Philadelphia, where in retirement she founded a school for kids to help them excel in school.

In this interview, she talks about how, on hearing a sermon about a “woman who cares,” realized that this is what God was calling her to be.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
