ACS Visit: Group 2

This week we were graced by the visit of the second group of Sisters from Assumption College for Sisters, Mendham, NJ.  We were blessed with great weather again, so we were able to take another outdoor photo in front of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women.

We are grateful for the time they took to visit us and for their thoughtful questions about our ministry and that of Family Promise of Passaic County

Welcome, ACS Students!

On Tuesday we welcomed the first of two groups of students from Assumption College for Sisters (ACS), Mendham, NJ (a sponsored work of the Sisters of Christian Charity).  These students are Sisters from various religious communities and various countries, studying for degrees in the United States.  We were happy to welcome the students and ACS President Sister Joseph Spring, SCC and welcome back Sister Mary Irene Sorber, SCC to the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women.  We were also grateful and fortunate to be able to visit Family Promise of Passaic County and hear from its Executive Director Cathy Boccard about the wonderful ministry being done for homeless families there.  We look forward to next Tuesday's visit from the second group of students from ACS.  Enjoy the photos!

Our Garden!

On Tuesday we were graced with magnificent weather as we planted the very first vegetable garden at the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women.  We were happy to welcome so many friends: the women of the Center (and some of their children),  Claudia and Jasmine from City Green, Sister Marion, Sister Ann and Luz from St. Mary's Hospital, and Susie and Ann who came all the way from Stirling to help us plant.  Sister Mary Irene, our garden coordinator, directed the planting and will help the women to carry the project through the summer.  We look forward to fresh tomatoes, carrots, onions, lettuce, kale and various herbs this summer.  (Email subscribers: If you do not see the embedded video above, please click here or here to enjoy the video slideshow of the planting.)
