Update on the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist

I have posted on this group of Sisters before, but I thought this video was very worth looking at. God bless this group of young religious! They must be doing something right! The CBC did a great job on this.

I love to see and hear good news about vocations. Many of you may have heard of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. They are a Roman Catholic religious order that was started out of Pope John Paul II's call in Vita Consecrata. They are based in Ann Arbor, MI and was founded by four sisters in 1997. The community's apostolate is Catholic education. They currently run the Spiritus Sanctus Academies, private and independent K-8 Catholic Schools in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lansing, and also have small groups of sisters teaching in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston, Sacramento, Venice and Phoenix at both the elementary and secondary levels. They also offer spiritual retreats, and spreading the faith by giving talks at colleges, Catholic groups, vocation fairs and other places. In the past 11 years they have grown from 4 Sisters to over 70! God bless them and continue to send them vocations!

Great Vid. I would love for you to recount her vocation story again. I was never aware of a Salesian presence in Louisiana and I would love to hear how you came to that order

Tradition was that nuns covered all their hair. Did notice a a lay girl singing who had long earrings on. She was on the right side. Certainly this is much better than the novus ordo religious; but growing up in our Catholic School/parish the nuns wore habits that covered All their hair, I think it should be retained.
