Catholic Sisters Week: Thank You Sisters!

By March 12, 2024June 4th, 2024No Comments

I am grateful for the gift of study and reflection! From my time at Aquinas as a student and young employee, there was no performance (or preaching) without preparation. Srs. Diane Dehn, OP, Regina Goeldel, OP, and Rosemary O’Donnell, OP, all made sure of that! As an Associate I learned even more, leaning on Sr. Mary Lucille Janowiak, OP, my Associate Mentor, Pat Hawkins, and Sr. Diane Zerfas, OP, to help me along with formation and everything Dominican.

I feel called to preach through my parenting, coaching, and leading schools through change. I couldn’t do my work half as effectively without the preparation and reflection through the pillar of study. Thank you to all of my sister-friends who helped me and continue to nourish the charism!

Let’s show the Sisters who have taught us, mentored us, and stood by us — lots of love during Catholic Sisters Week!

During Catholic Sisters Week, we invite everybody to come together to lift up the mission and spirituality of vowed women religious.

Raise up Dominican spirituality and Dominican values of: PRAYER, STUDY, SERVICE, COMMUNITY.

Give a shoutout to the Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids.
Let Sisters know that they have impacted your life, and how!
