Stella Maris Province declares the “Year of the Immigrant”

The Missionary Sisters engaged in an extended council meeting in Manhasset, NY September 26-October 3, 2010.  In her address to our college community on October 7th, Sr. Patricia Spillane, MSC Superior General, referred to the council and its work of ‘strategic planning for a prophetic future’.  One of the fruits of the council was the Stella Maris province declaration of the Year of the Immigrant.  From November 13, 2010 (the feast of St. Frances Cabrini)  to November 13, 2011, the Sisters and Lay Collaborators of the Stella Maris province will “focus on immigration with renewed zeal – in deepening our understanding of the issues involved, in advocacy for immigrants, and in service to them.”  To read the declaration, select the hyperlink:  Year of the Immigrant
