Arson gutted their Staten Island Convent, and now the community is helping the Daughters of Divine Charity rebuild.

Dozens of people turned out for a fundraiser at Saint Joseph Convent in Arrochar.

Guests were treated to music and food while visiting with the nuns.

The event also celebrated Sister Regina Gegic, who was critically injured when she jumped from the burning building.

The sisters say she is now walking and recovering well.
