Each year, the staff members of St. Mary's General Hospital, Passaic, make food baskets for Thanksgiving. For the past three years, the women of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women have been recipients of some of these baskets. We are extremely grateful to everyone at St. Mary's -- especially Sister Anne Moroney, SC and Luz Flores who coordinate the basket distribution -- for their overabundance of generosity. In these days of food insecurity, it is so good for our women and their families to receive these gifts. Thank you!!
To show just how very generous our benefactors at St. Mary's are, take a look at these photos of the baskets:

We are so very grateful to Rev. John Connolly (pastor), Dr. Joseph Daly, the entire staff and the Altar and Rosary Society of Sacred Heart R.C. Church in Clifton, NJ for their generosity to the Center. On Sunday, we picked up the last of the donations that resulted from their recent collection, including:
- Over 1,500 diapers
- Over 3,800 baby wipes
- 38 rolls of paper towels
- 141 rolls of toilet tissue
- Shop Rite gift cards.
We are so happy to expand that this collaborative ministry has expanded to include this parish family. Especially during Thanksgiving week, we are happy to be able to provide our women and their families with a "little extra" that makes a huge difference!
Here are a few photos of the donations:

From the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC): "The new administration is expected to make significant changes to current immigration policy. The details of what President-elect Trump will actually do on immigration are unknown, but we have prepared some resources for you . . ."

Please share widely with those who might need this information. From being cautious about scammers to what to do about DAPA and DACA status, this is crucial information for every immigrant.
We ask for your continued prayers for our ministry as we continue to provide a safe and peaceful place for the women of Passaic to express their needs.
