This was the fifth year for the Dominican Sisters of Mary to serve at Lansing Catholic High School and Resurrection School. At Lansing Catholic High School, students were taught the wonders of Chemistry by Sr. Stephen Patrick and explored American Literature with Sr. Peter Grace. It was another grace-filled year for Sr. Veronica Marie who prepared her second grade students for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, and also had several students receive Baptism. Sr. Mary Gabriel was new to the Lansing Mission this year and shared her knowledge of Math and Science with the sixth through eighth grade classes at Resurrection School.
There have been many blessings in Lansing this year. In September, the Sisters attended the “Made for Happiness” Diocesan Assembly and participated in the Eucharistic Procession from St. Mary’s Cathedral to the Breslin Center. Throughout the year, the Sisters have shared their knowledge and wisdom through testimonies and talks at various parish and school retreats, youth group gatherings, lectures, and discernment groups. They also attended the March for Life in DC and brought eleven students to the Sisters of Mary Discernment weekend in Ann Arbor.
Some of the highlights from the Lansing Mission include sharing our Novices and Postulants with our students at both schools in Lansing and visiting our homebound and community friends during the Christmas season. We are excited to share that two of our recent LCHS graduates are planning to enter seminary and religious life next year.
