Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist

I live in an area where religious vocations for women are in deep decline. The sisters who are still in our area work tirelessly and provide a wonderful example of joyful service to the Lord, but they are all getting along in years. My children have never seen a young sister.

Thankfully, there are places in this country where this is not the case. I received a flyer in the mail from The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. This order, based in Michigan, has a vocations crisis of a different kind - they are literally bursting at the seams, and the average age of their sisters is 28. They are a teaching order, working to provide Catholic schooling at an affordable price. They spend their days in prayer, study, and service, and wear a traditional Dominican habit.

I invite you to learn more about them at their website: www.sistersofmary.org. They are seeking donations to help provide housing and education for their sisters, and of course, they can always use our prayers.
