Today we say goodbye to one of our beloved former volunteers, Sister Marcella McHale, FSP, who passed away yesterday. We send our sympathy to Sister Marcella's community, the Franciscan Sisters of Peace, and to her family.
In 2014, Sister Marcella began to teach English here at the Center. Her students loved her gentle and humorous ways and they responded well to her. She was always willing to fill in whenever we needed a substitute, even if that meant traveling to Passaic two or three times a week.
The Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women enters its fifth year of existence because of the dedication of so many people, especially its volunteers.
Rest in peace, Sister Marcella. Thank you for the love and compassion you gave us!
