Last Friday our 4th and 5th graders visited the retired sisters of St. Dominic at their mother house in Amityville. The students attended Mass with the sisters in their chapel, were given a tour of the original mother house which dates back to the 1800s, and then visited and did a craft with the sisters. The sisters were so happy to spend time with our students and the students enjoyed helping the sisters with their craft and getting to know a little about them!
This was the first of several visits the students will make to Amityville this year and in between they will correspond with the sisters. We are looking forward to making some special friendships and can’t wait to return.
