Any history of the Center would be incomplete without a look at the art class. Click here to view a post from 2015, when art teacher Sr. Mary Culhane, SC, had been teaching the women for only three months.

As we continue our celebration of the seventh anniversary of Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women, we would like to share these photos from our very first quilting class on October 22, 2013. The women’s skills and confidence have grown so much from the time Sr. Patricia Reynolds, SC taught them to use a sewing machine until today. Their quilting projects have been admired (and purchased) by people all over the country! We are grateful to Sister Pat and to those who have made donations to our quilting program.

Today we celebrate the seventh anniversary of the day the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women opened its doors. In contemplating what might be shared with you regarding our anniversary, we have decided to stroll down memory lane, started at the beginning. So, please join us by viewing these photos from September 24, 2013.
The very last photo of the montage shows our dear friends Sister Ursula Carr, SC (on the left). We want to share with you that Sister Ursula passed away on Sunday, September 20. We are saddened by this news, but we also know that the Center has another strong intercession in heaven. Our condolences to the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth and to Sister Ursula’s family and friends. Rest In Peace, dear friend! Click here for the obituary of Sister Ursula.
As always, we are grateful to all of you for what you have done for us during the past seven years and what you continue to do for us each day!
