In the last week we were visited by two different sorts of Dominican sisters. In the first photo are two sisters of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia, i.e. the Nashville Dominicans, along with our venerable founder, Dr. Thomas Loome. The congregation will be celebrating their 150th jubilee this summer. Congratulations! I might also point out the college which they operate, Aquinas College. Dominicans, naturally, are very bookish!
Here in Stillwater during the school year we are graced by the presence of several sisters from the same congregation teaching at the local Catholic school. They are a joy to have around.
And here's a sister of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, based at Ann Arbor, MI. This congregation, which is relatively new, grew out of the Nashville congregation. They also tend to teach and be rather bookish. And like most sisters, they are quite merry. Perhaps that is because serving Our Lord is a joy. Cheers to the sisters!
