Vineyard House is hosting a potluck with The Sisters, including Sister Rose and Sister Maurice from the Bronx, bright, big-hearted, down-to-earth women who tell engaging, funny tales of living with the daily struggle of a habit, from the perspective of a nun’s habit.
A consultant to religious communities on chemical dependency and a member of the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill, N.Y., Sister Maurice shares her insights on the journey of recovery with her characteristic humor and energy. She founded the Office of New Directions, a full-time ministry devoted to educating religious communities about alcohol, alcoholism and chemical dependency. Her message for “living the program” is guaranteed to touch your heart and soul.
For years she’s led very popular retreats for recovering people on the East Coast. She is the former chair of the board of directors of the National Catholic Council on Alcoholism and Related Drug Problems — the first woman to hold that position.
The potluck supper with the sisters will be on Sunday, April 5, at 5:30 p.m. at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury. The cost is $25 and a dish for six persons to share. Reservations are required, as space is limited and the event is expected to sell out. For tickets, call 508-693-8580 or see online vineyardhouse.org.
