Cardinal Dolan blesses the new Pauline Book & Media Center in Manhattan Oct. 22, as Sister Amanda Detry, F.S.P., a novice with the Daughters of St. Paul, looks on. Assisting the cardinal at left is his priest secretary, Father James Ferreira.
The cardinal and the sisters mark the historic day with a group photo. Sister Neville Christine Forchap, F.S.P., the book center manager, is at the cardinal’s left and to his right is Sister Amanda. Next to Sister Amanda is Sister Sean Mayer, F.S.P., local superior, second from right.
The center’s treasure is an onsite Eucharistic Chapel.
A patron browses selections stacked on neatly lined shelves. The center, operated by the Daughters of St. Paul, moved to its new location at 115 E. 29th St., between Park and Lexington avenues, in April 2017. The sisters invite visitors to attend speaker events and workshops, and to pray in the Eucharistic Chapel.
