‘Golden’ Memories


I always love reading the milestones that you print of the many dedicated clergy and religious of the archdiocese.

It was especially nice to see Sister Cecilia Ann Flynn, O.P., and Sister Rita Farrell, O.P. Both are Dominican Sisters of Sparkill, both were principals of good old St. Brendan’s parish school in the Bronx and both are celebrating 70 years. That’s quite a milestone.

They had different styles, but both were dedicated to the faculty and students during the 1970s, especially in regard to our Catholic education. Many of us were fortunate enough to benefit under their leadership, along with many other Sparkill Sisters during their time. May God watch over them in their golden years.
