Dear Friends and Supporters,
On February 9, 1997, in the private chapel of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, I and three other Foundresses of our community, the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, professed our vows in the name of Holy Mother Church in the presence of His Eminence John Cardinal O’Connor. Soon thereafter, the Lord led us to the Diocese of Lansing, Michigan, where we built our Motherhouse and staffed our own Spiritus Sanctus Academy schools. Since that time, we have been blessed abundantly by the robust growth of our community and the continued expansion of our educational apostolate.
In reflecting upon the upcoming 20th anniversary of that joyful day in New York, I recall His Eminence telling the story of
Abraham, a man called by God to give up everything for the sake of a promise. As we listened to those words, we knew we were
setting out in faith, as Abraham did, into an unknown and veiled future. Yet, we were confident that the Lord would provide for
us. Little did we know how abundant His promise was to be!
