The proclamation, to be introduced by Legislator Patrick Moroney, recognizes NCSW and the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt. It makes the week-long celebration honoring women religious feel more established and more widely acknowledged.
“We’re happy that national exposure is being given to women religious and their current ministries through the promotion of National Catholic Sisters Week,” said Sister Michaela Connolly, O.P. “The proclamation by the legislature recognizing the women’s religious congregations in the county is a great honor. We are grateful to Legislator Moroney for introducing it.”
As part of NCSW, the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt are hosting a number of events, including a Lenten lecture and film series held yesterday at their motherhouse. They will also be hosting:
- Friday, March 11 – Live Stream “Ask A Sister” with Sister Michaela at 9:30 AM on the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt Facebook Page
- Sunday, March 13 – Celtic Tea at 2 PM at the Motherhouse
