Lifers. Joe and Sue Fahey have made a lifetime commitment of generosity of time, talent and treasure to promote affordable, high quality Catholic education--the kind that honors the worth, dignity and potential of each human being and is founded on and grounded in mutual respect, integrity, compassion and justice--values reflective of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Their deep commitment to furthering the mission and vision of the Sisters of St. Joseph is witnessed by their steadfast service and dedication to CSJ-sponsored Avila University and St. Teresa's Academy in Kansas City, Missouri. With the quiet humility of St. Joseph, Joe and Sue work tirelessly collaborating with others to insure any endeavor with which they are associated flourishes. Their contagious spirit has inspired many others to put faith into action through service not only at the university and the academy but also in their parish, in their community and in their children--a legacy that will last well beyond their lifetime.

With eyes open, ears attentive, and sleeves rolled up, Bob and Judy seek out and take on limitless opportunities to serve.
