I just saw your entry about Union City . Let me give you some accurate information.
Sr. Gemma and Sr. Carol Marie are at the Infirmary at the Dominican Sisters of Caldwell. So, with Mother Mary Jordan there along with 2 of our nuns there are 5 nuns being beautifully cared for by our Dominican Sisters! A little mini-monastery, you might say!
Sr. Mary Aquinas transferred to the Bronx monastery and is very happy there. She looks great!
The monastery will be used by several religious congregations in NJ as a place for single moms with children to live. The building is in a lot of disrepair and will need renovations.
When a monastery begins the process of closure the Master of the Order appoints a friars as vicar to over see everything. For union City Fr. Izzo, the provincial has been appointed and he has been amazingly tender and concerned for them.
Sr. Mary of the Compassion’s artwork is going to the Provincial archives.
That’s about all I can tell you for now!
