What’s the word on OPening Word? Twenty-five years of helping women!

Recently, hundreds gathered for the annual Thanks-for-Giving fundraiser at the Motherhouse which included desserts, raffles, crafts for kids, testimonials and a dance performance by some of the students!

The OPening Word, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville, is a literacy and job readiness program which helps to unlock the language ability of adult immigrant women participants, providing them with a key to future personal empowerment, increased civic and social responsibility, and enhanced work force skills.

There are three sites on Long Island: Huntington Station, Amityville and Wyandanch.

Save the date for their next event: their 25th anniversary celebration, a dinner/dance with a live music at Cresthollow Country Club in Woodbury.
