From left to right, Sandy with the Maryknoll Sisters, Sister Ann Hayden and Sister Anastasia Lott, on her “Dear Sandy” TV show to discuss the Maryknoll centennial anniversary.
Established in 1912, the Maryknoll Sisters became the first group of Catholic Sisters in the US to dedicate their time and services to foreign countries. The Sisters share their personal experiences overseas and the difficult and dangerous challenges they faced in trying to provide health, education, and religious services. Galef discusses with the sisters how Maryknoll grew from originally serving only China into an extensive worldwide organization. Sister Ann and Sister Anastasia explain their strong underlying philosophy of serving the community. However, they make note of the importance of addressing local issues that affect the community and the environment as well, such as hydrofracking.
“Sister Ann and Sister Anastasia represent a wonderful religious establishment that is vital to improving the world and reminds us of the importance of helping others,” Galef said. “We are so lucky to have Maryknoll’s presence in Ossining and look forward to celebrating this important anniversary with them.”
