Sister Grace Praised as “Unsung Heroine” August 1, 2017

Sister Grace Regina Wingenfeld, OP was profiled recently in Newsday along with two other Sisters from Long Island congregations. In the article, it boasts that Sister Grace is not only the oldest Sister in our congregation — but that she has been a Sister for almost 90 years. We thank all of our Sisters who have served in ministry for many years, especially those who are 100 years old or more including Annette Marie Sledzaus and Francis Dominici Piscatella. We are grateful for all of the hard work that the writer Bart Jones did coming to the Motherhouse multiple times.
