Want to help some needy Catholic sisters?

 |  NCR Today

Want to return the favor? Want to help our Catholic sisters? Want to help them in their ministries? Want to support just a bit some of the women who have given their lives to caring for you and caring for the needy? Here's an immediate action you can take. (I received this press release from the Sisters of Mercy in New York earlier today.)

The years – almost 150 of them –have taken their toll on Brooklyn’s beautiful Convent of Mercy. For safety’s sake, the elderly and infirm sisters have had to relocate, but Sisters of Mercy from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Hamptons have not lost the passion for serving people in need.

To help fund their ministries while continuing to care for their retired members, they will hold their 12th Annual Evening of Mercy on May 30th at Manhattan’s Yale Club.

For raffles, journal ads, and more information about the event, please contact Sister Camille D’Arienzo or Kristina Papa Behar at 914 328 3200 X 417.
