WHO IS RUTHIE?
Ruthie is a mother of two grown kids and fifth of twelve siblings. A retired yoga instructor, she now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, serving as Kitchen Manager at the Jesuit Novitiate, in addition to owning and managing Organized Living with Ruthie.

WHAT IS PRE-PRANS?
Pre-Prans is basically happy hour. Short for preprandial, it’s anything done right before a meal, like having appetizers and drinks. In the Society of Jesus, “pre-prans” is a traditional way that Jesuits who live together make time in their busy schedules to gather as a community.
