How the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus & Mary (SNJMs) helped us grow
In February of 2002, a group of twelve immigrant Latina women came together to create change in our community with the guidance of Bridget Cooke and Sister Barbara Raymond of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus & Mary (SNJMs).
