College of New Rochelle aims to encourage Catholic traditions


The College of New Rochelle's mission is grounded in Catholic intellectual, moral and social justice tradition. According to the school, its Office of Mission and Identity provides programs, panels and opportunities for discussion on topics and issues that are related to the roles and realities of women in the world, the issues of Catholic social justice and the examination of theological principles.

New Rochelle's Office of Mission and Identity has presented lectures such as Women and Spirit: The Ursulines and Catholic Sisters in America. The event, which was hosted by Sister Karen Kenelly, focused on the Women and Spirit exhibit at Ellis Island in New York.

The exhibit emphasizes the role that the Catholic Sisters in America played in promoting social services, educational opportunities and healthcare for the disadvantaged.

Kennelly, who is a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet, holds master's and doctoral degrees. Her research focuses on women in religion, specifically Roman Catholic sisters in the U.S. who pursue higher education. Her presentation was part of the Sister Alice Gallin Lecture Series.
