Hogans of Mercy

Deb Newman writes for Naperville Patch:

Bruce George, President of Charles Vincent George Architects in Naperville, has designed a traditional Navajo Hogan home for the wife of the late Rt. Reverend Steven Plummer, the first Navajo Bishop of the Episcopal Church, in the Navajo Nation in Bluff, Utah, as well as a smaller Guest Hogan, based on design specifications of Navajo tradition. Catherine Plummer, who is ordained herself, continues to live and serve in the community, in a trailer which has recently been condemned as unlivable.

The sacred dwellings will be constructed with the assistance of 25 youth members of Grace Episcopal Church in Hinsdale, under the supervision of volunteer professional contractors, 24 adults and Father Chris Pierce, Rector. The group will travel to Bluff, Utah, June 7-15th. George is a Hinsdale resident and a member of the church.
