Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist
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.
