St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry, a Catholic graduate and professional school in Pittsford, has elected three new board members: Ronald F. Dow, Anne Shaw Fenstermacher and Deacon Anthony J. Sciolino.
Dow is the retired director of the University of Rochester Library and served as dean of the University of Rochester Library System, and was instrumental in creating and integrating St. Bernard’s collection with that of the university. He serves on the board of Rochester Historical Society.
Fenstermacher is retired director of volunteers for Rochester General Hospital. She holds degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Cornell University and the Simon School at the University of Rochester. She is an active member of St. Louis Church, Pittsford, and serves on the Rochester General Hospital Association. With this appointment, she continues her commitment to the people and programs of St. Bernard’s, having served as a St. Bernard’s trustee in the 1990s.
Deacon Sciolino is a retired Monroe County Family Court judge. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Columbia University and a law degree from Cornell Law School. He was ordained a permanent deacon in 1998, the same year that he earned a master’s degree in theology from St. Bernard’s. Deacon Sciolino ministers at Church of the Transfiguration, Pittsford, and has been active in promoting Catholic-Jewish relations. He also has been an advocate for children who are involved in the family-court system, and he is a member of the Monroe County Bar Association.
