Thanks, again, to The Beacon!

Once again, we are grateful to everyone at The Beacon, the award-winning newspaper of the Diocese of Paterson, NJ, for its coverage of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women.  This article by Cecile Pagliarulo in the April 20 edition is a reminder of the debt of gratitude we owe to the Partners in Faith donors.  Without your generosity, our ministry could not exist.  Thank you!

Women's Conference

We are grateful to everyone at St. Paul Inside the Walls for their efforts in bringing us a wonderful Diocesan Women's Conference, attended by about 250 women.  As you know, we were also able to offer our women's handcrafted items for sale at the conference.  Here are some photos to mark the occasion.

Sister Elaine Maguire, FSP, Associate Director of the Center
and Sister Eleanor Goekler, longtime supporter and Monday
English teacher, await the crowds who will buy our women's quilted
and crocheted items.

The crowd of over 250 women listens attentively to one of the speakers.
