This chapter details the congregation's work at four parishes, three located in the South and one, St. Brigid's, in New York City. Sisters assigned to these parishes conducted religious education classes and developed programs that would serve the needs of the area's residents. They also participated in various events connected with the civil rights and ecumenical movements. Social settlement workers believed in the importance of getting children out of congested urban areas during the summer, and Mother Marianne opened Camp Marydell in Nyack, New York, to give their neighbors on the Lower East Side a chance to spend some time outside of the city. The sisters viewed the camp as an important part of their apostolate, and former campers still return to visit with the sisters and reminisce about their experiences in Nyack.
