On October 25, 2018 more than 30 of our faculty, staff and Ursuline sisters celebrated the work of Meals-on-Wheels of New Rochelle at its Annual Gala and honored our faculty member Ms. Patrice McDermott who was recognized for outstanding community service.
Ursuline has partnered with this vital organization for 5 years. Ms. McDermott has encouraged and organized our students to help deliver hot meals to the homebound, visit participants, help with mailings, and assist at events (including this gala).
In her remarks, Ms. McDermott noted that these activities by our students contribute to the strengthening of their character and learning that service is love in action. Mayor Bramson delivered a proclamation from the City Council and the County proclaimed October 27 to be Patrice McDermott Day as displayed on the County Center!
