For over 60 years we Sisters, the Franciscan Sisters of Saint Elizabeth, have dedicated ourselves to the care and education of the children of Nutley and the surrounding area. We serve our families by offering classes for children ages 2.5 through 6 years old. In these times of forced closure with no students, we have no tuition collection and no form of income. We have adjusted our lives to be more basic in the lines of St. Francis of Assisi but we are finding we are experiencing unexpected emergency repairs to our buildings. The two roof leaks are fixed, now the other building's roof may have a problem. The stove gave out and we are still waiting for the new one to be delivered. Also we dug up a pipe which has a 3" crack the entire length of the pipe. Emergency repairs are in the process. A classroom boiler also "blew" and needs replacing. When it rains, it pours! BUT, we have our health, we are full of joy and anxious to reopen the school! Your kind donation would help us be prepared to reopen. We hope by July the repairs will be finished and we will be able to reopen. We miss the children dearly and cannot wait for their return. Thank you. God bless you.
