The History Channel: The History of Valentine's Day: "Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday? The history of Valentine's Day -- and its patron saint -- is shrouded in mystery." (More....)


'Home Kids' By Nancy Canfield: The story of St. Agatha Home for Children:
"We're going to take you kids,"
he pointed to each of us sitting on the couch and said our names in a sing-song voice "Jackie... Tommy... Hellen... David and Nancy," pausing between each name as if to prove he knew them, "to see a school tomorrow, a boarding school, see how you like it." He said this in a voice that implied it was temporary, like we'd have a choice about attending. With those words the Canfield siblings began a journey that profoundly shaped their formative years. Home Kids is Nancy Canfield's courageous retelling of her family's dramatic story and the inspirational story of St. Agatha Home for Children.  (More....)

''New Possibilities' By Mary Ann Poust: Catholic New York - Archives: Feature Story, July 20, 2000
"Sparkill Dominican Sisters look to future as they mark 125th anniversary. The Dominican Sisters of Sparkill have launched a year of celebration of the congregation's 125th anniversary, and the theme they selected will meet the approval of anyone who knows their ministry.

It's "Women Making a Difference," and that's what the sisters have been doing since an English-born convert, Alice Mary Thorpe, arrived in Manhattan with her sister Lucy in 1872 to live and work among the city's poor."
