penn community

If you were ever wondering what the words “Southern hospitality” meant, visit the Penn Community of Atlanta, Georgia.  On a regular basis you’ll find four Dominican sisters, one or two volunteers, and maybe even a couple of houseguests, as weekends are commonly sprinkled with visiting sisters, family members, or old friends.  Needless to say, this large urban house is rarely empty and always filled with conversation, shared meals, and laughter.  Located on Penn Avenue in Midtown, Atlanta, the community is minutes from the city’s beautiful Piedmont Park and downtown.
