OSSINING, N.Y. – The pioneering work of Ossining's Maryknoll Sisters, the first U.S.-based congregation of Catholic women dedicated to foreign mission, will be celebrated in a new documentary.
The film, “Trailblazers in Habits,” will be shown March 27 at Maryknoll Society in Ossining. The 90-minute film tells the story, in the Sisters’ own words, of the congregation’s work in education, healthcare and the cause of social justice. The premiere coincides with the Maryknoll Sisters' Centennial year. Production of the film was almost entirely funded by donations from the thousands who attended Maryknoll schools around the world.
The screening will take place Friday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the Asia Room at Maryknoll Society Mission Center, 55 Ryder Road, Ossining.
Sisters featured in the film will be on hand to greet attenders and will answer questions following the showing. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served.
