Congratulations, Dominican Sisters of Hope!

Although we are a few days late with our greetings, our sentiments are heartfelt:  Congratulations to the Dominican Sisters of Hope, Ossining, NY, on your 25th anniversary!  At 3 pm on July 20, 1995, the Dominican Sisters of Hope were founded.  On July 19, 2019, the Sisters began their Silver Anniversary year by declaring a "Year of Hope."  And, if there was ever a time that the world needed a Year of Hope, this is it!  Reflections on their Year of Hope can be found here.  We are especially honored that the Center has been included on the website ("Hope Is: Giving Women a Space to Thrive") and in a calendar to commemorate the Year of Hope.  

The Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women owes tremendous gratitude to these Sisters for their strong and consistent support of this ministry.  Long before the Center opened its doors, Dominican Sister of Hope Catherine McDonnell (at that time, Vice Chancellor for Urban Ministry and Planning in the Diocese of Paterson; now Prioress of her Congregation), was involved in the dreaming and planning that made the Center a reality.  Now, as the Center prepares to enter its eighth year of service to the families of Passaic, the Dominican Sisters of Hope continue to support us prayerfully, financially, materially and in immeasurable other ways.  

While "thank you" seems to be such a small return for all you have done for us, it is all we have to offer.  So, from the women, volunteers, staff and board of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women, THANK YOU to the Dominican Sisters of Hope!
