Eagle Scout Project Beautifies Motherhouse Grounds
These beautiful raised planter boxes --currently filled with mums -- will bring many smiles to the faces of the Sisters. Who built it? A team of Scouts lead by now Eagle Scout Chris O'Hea of Troop 285. The two planter boxes are located where the Sisters sit in nice weather near the old "potato house" or root cellar in the front of the Motherhouse.
Thank you Chris for your kindness to our community!

Do you have a coat?With the temperature plummeting 20 degrees in one week, it's safe to say that fall is finally here, and winter won't be far behind!

From now through the end of the calendar year, anyone who drops off a new or gently-used coat to Main St Stereo in Sayville will receive a gift card for 10 percent off a remote start system, which can also be used by friends or family members. In turn, these coats will help our neighbors in need, many of whom struggle to stay warm in the cold winter months.

Coats may be dropped off in the store during the normal operating hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

God bless St. Oscar Romero.... and our own S. Margaret Mayce who was honored to be part of the celebration!This is the only Commission of the Order with all five branches present – the nuns, sisters, friars, laity and youth. This annual meeting was suffused with prayer, encounter, listening to one other, contemplation and proposed action. It included our attendance at the canonisation of St Oscar Romero and Saint Paul VI as well as four other saints by Pope Francis which was both a blessing and an encouragement for us to foster justice and peace in the Order and the world. ...
