Mobile Dominican Republic consulate sets up at Bronx church in Tremont

(08/17/03) TREMONT - Bronx Dominicans did not have to go far to get assistance from consulate. Instead, a mobile consulate made a special trip to the borough for them.

The consulate turned Saint Margaret Mary's Church into its mobile office on Sunday. Many Bronx Dominicans say it is almost impossible for them to travel to the consulate, so they gratefully filled the Bronx church. They got legal advice and help obtaining passports and immigration documents.

Bronx residents who need more information from the Dominican Republic consulate can call (212) 768-2677.
