Mercy Center to Honor Sister Camille D’Arienzo

The Dorothy Bennett Mercy Center will hold its eighth annual Mercy Spirit Awards Dinner on Oct. 17 at the Belle Harbor Yacht Club, Rockaway Park. This year’s Mercy Spirit Award honoree is Mercy Sister Camille D’Arienzo.

Sister Camille is being honored for her lifelong commitment to the poor and marginalized, to journalistic excellence and for her involvement with the Cherish Life Circle, which she founded to end capital punishment. She is the past president of the Sisters of Mercy (former Brooklyn Regional Community) and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and a 1010 WINS commentator.

Proceeds benefit the education programs at the Dorothy Bennett Mercy Center, Fort Greene. For information on tickets or the commemorative journal, contact Sister Breige Lavery, R.S.M., at 718-622-7448 or dorothybmc@verizon.net.
