THROWBACK THURSDAY: S. Frances Maureen Carlin was our prioress from 1967-73. In this HERITAGE MOMENT, we see handwritten works from this beautiful Sister. One important book she left behind was the Renewed Rosary, a book that gives people variations on how to pray the Rosary. Many people have asked for this book over the years. Maybe you would like to see it too? Visit our Heritage Center at the Motherhouse in Amityville!

What is it like to live in community with our Sisters? Sean Puzzo, our amazing Dominican Volunteer resides with other Dominican Volunteers as well as our Sisters at St. Hugh of Lincoln Convent in Huntington Station. Here's what he has to say so far about the experience:
“When I was a young child in elementary school, I remember being in the grocery store with my mom. As we turned around the aisle, I froze in my tracks and couldn’t believe my eyes: there halfway down the aisle was one of my school teachers. In a matter of seconds my theory that teachers never left school and slept there was shattered.
I had a flashback to that moment when I first moved into my community of sisters this summer. Sisters are just like regular people: they joke, they cook, they work, they may drink, and on the rarest of occasions they may say a bad word! Sisters are educators, medical workers, counselors, social justice activists, and so much more. In my case, they will become a second family.”
-Sean Puzzo, 2017-18 Dominican Volunteer who works with our own S. Gina Flemming in the Dominican Youth Movement.
