ORANGETOWN, N.Y. -- The Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt will participate in National Catholic Sisters Week, March 8-14, an annual celebration that honors women religious.

The Rockland County Legislature will also recognize the week and the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt with a proclamation that was introduced by Legislator Patrick Moroney (District 15).

“We are happy that national exposure is being given to women religious and their current ministries through the promotion of National Catholic Sisters Week. The Proclamation by the Legislature, recognizing the women’s religious congregations in the county, is a great honor. We are grateful to Legislator Moroney for introducing it,” said Sister Michaela Connolly.
