“You will show me the path of life...” - Psalm 16

The path has twisted and turned during these 60 years, from a community of Williams on a small farm in Byron Center,…

… to a community of Dominican Sisters who share their lives of simplicity and prayer, laughter and song,…

… as we walk the road together toward, “the fullness of joy in God’s presence”.
