Going Toward the Periphery

On Saturday, February 27, Sister Ann Marie Paul, SCC, Director of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women, addressed the Religious Teachers Filippini at Villa Walsh in Morristown, NJ during their annual Study Day.  Sister Ascenza Tizzano, MPF, Provincial Superior, invited Sister Ann Marie to address the theme, "Going Toward the Periphery" as it pertains to the collaborative ministry that is the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women.

Having been a member of the subcommittee that worked toward the founding of the Center and now a member of the Center's board, Sister Ascenza is acutely aware of the ministry and its service to those "on the periphery" and she was eager for her Sisters to hear this message.

Because the Center is a collaborative effort between the Diocese of Paterson and its religious communities, these presentations to religious communities are key to the ongoing fulfillment of the mission of the Center.  We are grateful to Sister Ascenza, her Council and the Religious Teachers Filippini in attendance, who responded so positively to the presentation.
