PMA Students and Staff Collect $2,300 in Pennies to Build a Home for Nino

submitted by Sister Maria Rosa, PM Presentation of Mary Academy (PMA) students and help support the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary in Hudson by donating pennies/coins to help build an orphanage for Nino and many other homeless children in the Philippines.

PMA students were going home last week and telling their parents that the “Sisters had a baby, well, it’s true!” Last January 2011, a baby was found on the doorsteps of the sisters’ convent in the Philippines. The baby was only two hours old, when the sisters found him naked on their doorsteps. The Sisters immediately took the baby to the hospital to get him checked and called the police to let them know that the baby had been dropped off at their door. To this day, no one has claimed the baby, so guess who’s raising the baby? The Sisters! And guess what has happened with each passing day? The sisters have fallen in love with the baby and have called him “Nino,” short for Anthony. Guess what the Nino’s last name is? Rivier, after Anne Marie Rivier, the founder of the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary … too cute, I must add! Nino now lives with the sisters, an unusual occurrence in convent

life! Here’s our dilemma. What to do with Nino? He now has 1,126 moms, all of the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary! We have fallen in love with Nino, and none of us wants to give him up. Instead, we have decided to open an orphanage in the Philippines

The orphanage will be a real home for the children. The Sisters of the Presentation of Mary will care
