Overview

Sometimes we hear stories about miracles and a strength of character and determination that have made the impossible possible. In the story of "Little L" you will hear about such a feat which makes reference to Bible passages as the story is told. This is a true story about a remarkable woman, Sister Lisa Gambacorto, Directress of Mount Saint Mary Academy. In 2008 Mount Saint Mary Academy celebrated 100 years of excellence and service in the education of young women. Also this was the year when the "Field of Dreams" became a reality and was transformed into what is now called the "Victory of Angels Field". This story is a tribute to all who have had a part in the vision, work and planning of the "Victory of Angles Field" which is nothing short of a miracle in the year 2008.
