Sisters of St. Dominic of the American Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Founded

It is from St. Dominic Academy and its convent in Jersey City that the Sisters of St. Dominic of the American Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus came into being in 1881.  A tuberculosis epidemic that was devastating the cities of the northeast was also taking the lives of novices and young sisters in Jersey City.
