 COAR was among the sponsoring organizations that celebrated the 35th anniversary and, more importantly, the Living Legacy of the murders of the Four North American Churchwomen.  Jean Donovan’s daily diary is currently housed at COAR’s Cleveland office. Sr. Dorothy Kazel, OSU, is also a daily presence in the COAR office through the support of her congregation, the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland.
