Sharing the Summer with You, Part III

On Thursday, August 10, Sisters of Christian Charity Maria de la Cruz, Maria Ester and Maria Ingrid visited the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women and the North Hudson Community Action Corporation (NHCAC) clinic.  These Sisters came to the United States from Uruguay, Chile and Bolivia to participate in a project in honor of the 200th birthday of the founder of the Sisters of Christian Charity, Pauline von Mallinckrodt (1817-1881).  Because August 10 was also the birthday of Sister Maria de la Cruz, our women and children joined in singing and refreshments in her honor.  The Sisters were also able to sample some of the local cuisine on Market St.  We are grateful to Sister Marlene, one of the SCC Provincial Councilors from Mendham, NJ, for escorting the Sisters to Passaic.  Enjoy the photos!

The Sisters were greeted by Andrea, one of this summer's faithful volunteers.

"Happy Birthday" was sung in English . . . 

. . . and Spanish
