Northeast Dominicans Offer Opportunities to Explore New Ministries

SPARKILL, NY - May 1, 2009-- The NorthEast Dominicans sponsored a collaborative Ministry Fair on March 28th in Sparkill.  The program gave sisters in the area an opportunity to hear about new opportunities for service in full-time, part-time and volunteer ministry. Twenty five ministries were represented.  At least 100 sisters participated. The planners hope to expand the porogram next year to include other religious congregations.

"This was a learning experience for me.  Hearing firsthand about all that is being done was overwhelming," said one visitor. The sisters who had an chance to consider new options found it to be very helpful and and were eneergized by the variety and commitment of the projects and programs which were present.

Education, Health/Wellness, Housing/Social Service Ministry, Hospitality and Spirituality, Parish and Religious Education and Missionary Ministries were represented.

The ministry fair was created so that Dominican sisters who are seeking a transition to a new ministry can meet with administrators and for administrators as well to seek out new possibiliites.

The planning team included Sr. Pat Howell, Blauvelt, Sr. Alice Uhl, Caldwell, Sr. Alice Byrnes, Amityville, Sr. Louise Levesque, Hope, Sr. Muriel Cooney, Sparkill
