TEACHERS AND SPIRITUAL MOTHERS
Our primary apostolate is to serve the mission of Catholic education in schools as teachers and administrators. We bring Christ to the classroom and point to Him as the primary Teacher. Our greatest gift is the witness of our religious consecration and our total dedication to the Church’s mission of education as brides of Christ and spiritual mothers.
Women religious have been an integral part of the history of Catholic education in the United States. As Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, we seek to continue the tradition of educating generations of young people in their Faith and, most of all, to bring them into a deeper relationship with Christ.
Authentic Human Flourishing
Drawing upon our own intimate relationship with Christ as women religious, we bring a conviction and a passion to our teaching as we share our knowledge of Christ and His Church. Our students receive a liturgical, doctrinal, spiritual, intellectual, physical and moral formation in light of Truth. We cultivate classrooms and schools that promote authentic Catholic culture.
Education in the Christian Virtues
We support the growth and excellence of the whole child so that our students too can go out and engage and transform the culture in truth, goodness and beauty. Pope Benedict XVI said, “The dignity of education lies in fostering the true perfection and happiness of those to be educated.” Our virtue-based formation is inspired by the teaching of Saint Thomas Aquinas and fosters the holiness and happiness of our students.
Find a School Where We Teach
We own and administer Spiritus Sanctus Academies, which are private Catholic K-8 schools in the Ann Arbor and Plymouth areas of southeast Michigan. The schools are staffed by our Sisters, priests and laity. Our Spiritus Sanctus Academies prize daily Mass as a school community and strong academics and formation. We also teach at other schools throughout the United States.
Consecrated persons are thus leaven that are able to create relations of increasingly deep communion, that are in themselves educational. They promote solidarity, mutual enhancement, and joint responsibility in the educational plan, and, above all, they give an explicitly Christian testimony, through communication of the experience of God and of the evangelical message, even sharing the awareness of being instruments of God and bearers of a charism in the service of all men.
