The Sisters of St. Dominic recently received a $3,000 grant from Ridgewood Savings Bank at the Motherhouse in Amityville, NY. The grant will help further the work of Heart to Heart Ministry, Opening Word and Visitation Community. “Since 1999 Ridgewood Savings Bank has been a generous supporter of the Sisters. Over the years we have been the recipients of several grants which have contributed to ministry support for our programs serving the economically disadvantaged in the NY metropolitan area,” said Mary Fuchs, Director of Advancement.
