As you know, we are always grateful to everyone at The Beacon, the diocesan newspaper, for its coverage of events here at the Center. Sometimes, though, there are articles in The Beacon that we want to point out because of their coverage of our friends and supporters. This week's issue offers one of those opportunities. Please see page one (available here) for an article by Michael Wojcik about the dedication of new trees and a bench in Paterson's Eastside Park to honor the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of the Mother of God (SMIC), who served in Paterson for 92 years.
As the article mentions, Sisters from the SMIC community serve as volunteers at the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women. In fact, the SMIC community has supported the Center in many ways -- even before we opened our doors in September 2013!
We are grateful to the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of the Mother of God for their continued support here in Passaic and for their over 90 years of service to God's people in Paterson.
