Curiosity, persistence and determination leads to successful 'harp ministry'
"News 19 photographer Elizabeth Briggson and Dave Solie spoke with Sister Malinda recently, and learned more about what became a 'harp ministry.'

She now focuses her playing at the Mary of the Angels Chapel, Saint Rose Convent and San Damiano Chapel on the Viterbo University campus.
