Blessed Sacrament

This Saturday, Oct. 17th is the reunion at St. Mary of the Visitation in Rhode Island. So far 150 people have signed up – the largest number ever! It will take place at the West Valley Inn in West Warwick at noon.


Visitation Moments: This week I had wonderful Visitation Moments during a visit to St. Columba. Had a delightful lunch and sharing with Sister Rose who I was visiting; Sister Barbara Costello who was visiting Sisters Joan Curtin and Anna Romano who went out of her way to provide the lunch. With what ease do we come together! My second Visitation Moment was when two little boys across the street helped me catch my mischievous cat, Shadow (Houdina) when she got out of the house. They retorted: we’ll help you get her and they did. Cathy Crowley, CND


National Religious Organization Applauds Introduction of Bipartisan Criminal Justice Reform Bill Legislation Would Dramatically Limit Solitary Confinement of Youth in Federal Prisons

WASHINGTON – On February 12 a bipartisan coalition of U.S. senators introduced the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015, legislation that will reform a number of critical criminal justice practices including largely prohibiting the solitary confinement of youth in federal prisons. A diverse slew of Senators (Sens: Lee (R-UT), Durbin (D-IL), Cruz (R-TX), Leahy (D-VT), Flake (R-AZ), Booker (D-NJ), Paul (R-KY), Whitehouse (D-RI) and Coons (D-DE)) stood together in a press conference to announce their co-sponsorship of the Smarter Sentencing Act of 2015. The National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) has mobilized people of faith across the country to oppose solitary confinement, and has specifically led efforts to ban the solitary confinement for juveniles in California and other jurisdictions. Please follow the progress of Senate bill S.1410 and House bill H.R. 3382
