A Celebration of Mercy
The Sisters of Mercy Northeast Community hosted and sponsored the Governor’s Award for Service to Rhode Island at their “Celebration of Mercy” event on Friday, May 4th. Johnson & Wales University catered the event under a tent on Gaebe Commons, and Chris Gasbarro’s Fine Wine & Spirits provided a wine tasting for the guests. NBC 10’s Mario Hilario was emcee. Following the reception under the tent, guests were led to PPAC for a special performance of HAIRSPRAY. All funds raised from the event will go into the Ministry Fund and will enable the Sisters to respond to the many who come to them on a daily basis for the basic needs of life: shelter, food, clothing, medical supplies, and counseling.
