May you be filled with joyful hope as you await this Bread from heaven, this Babe born in a feeding trough, Sent to nourish our hungry world.
May you wait in wonder, giving thanks and praise…
Friends and Sisters filled the halls of Dominican Center last night, to celebrate ADVENTure 2019. Our annual festive fundraiser captured the spirit of the season, with twinkling piano music, bubbly refreshments, stellar cuisine, and joyful laughter and conversation.
“Whatever you did for my brothers and sisters, you did for me.” During her remarks,Prioress Sister Sandra Delgado cited this verse from Matthew, reminding us to consider how we nourish community in this time and place. As she urged us, “Now is the time to nourish all that is good in the world.”
Later, guests watched a short video describing the Dominican Sisters’ lifelong commitment to care for God’s people—mind, body, and spirit. You can watch, Called to Nourish, here, and please share it with your friends.
ADVENTure 2019 was made possible by dozens of generous sponsors, dedicated volunteers, and a tireless team of Sisters and staff. Funds raised help support the ministries of the Dominican Sisters—nourishing all our brothers and sisters in the world. THANK YOU!
