New York Dominican Community Lavishes Care on the Terminally Ill
Last edited 8th August 2011

"If you have to be terminal, this is the place to come," said Harriet Boyle, as the sun poured into her room through huge windows. Harriet is living in Rosary Hill Home, a free palliative care facility run by the Dominican Sisters Congregation of St. Rose of Lima in Hawthorne, north of New York City. "It's the most unusual place I've ever been. You're not conscious of people being ill here. We all have cancer and we're all terminal, but it's serene and there are lots of moments of fun and laughter," she said.

Breaking Religious Ground by Using the Web
Last edited 17th July 2011

The internet is used for pretty much everything nowadays. Now these nuns are getting ready to use the web for something they're not all accustomed to. For years now, Sister de Witt has used the internet to connect with a younger crowd. The idea came, when she realized that less and less youths were going to Church.
