On May 2, 2020, family and friends of Cabrini of Westchester resident, Sr. Miriam Anne Brennan, Sister of Charity, gathered at a social distance to celebrate her 100th birthday!
Cabrini staff arranged for Sr. Miriam to appear in a window near her room while her loved ones waved, displayed banners and extended their well wishes from the parking lot outside the building.
Sr. Miriam’s good friend, James Landy, was in attendance and said, “While not the gathering we had planned, and that Sr. Annie deserves, it’s great that she can see us acknowledge this wonderful milestone.”
Staff contacted CBS News to ask for coverage of this event and it was aired at 6:00 pm that evening! (see the link below) Happy Birthday, Sr. Miriam!
