OF THE NEWARK MONASTERY IN PROGRESS
November 1, 2017
The Benedictine Sisters, families and friends gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony for their new monastery on the grounds of Holy Family Church in Newark. Construction is expected to be completed later in 2018.
NCSW is an annual celebration that took place from March 8–14, 2017.
Created to honor women religious, it is a series of events that instruct, enlighten, and bring greater focus to the lives of these incredible women. It’s our chance to recognize all they have done for us. It’s also our hope that as more young women learn about women religious, more will choose to follow their example.
