Sr. Maria, Sr. Maria José, and Sr. Dominica are the three Sisters living in Rome for the 2021-2022 academic year. Sr. Maria continues her work as Administrator of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum). Sr. Maria José begins her second year as the head librarian at the Randal Riede Library while Sr. Dominica experiences Rome for the first time as librarian at the Casa Santa Maria. Both librarians work for the Pontifical North American College and have the opportunity to serve the priests and seminarians of the College.
As the year begins, the Sisters have already begun their apostolates as well as their active lives of prayer at the different churches they visit in Rome. They have begun to visit St. Peter’s Basilica, Santa Sabina, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, St. Mary Major, and other magnificent holy sites. Furthermore, as the country of Italy relaxes its restrictions as the pandemic subsides, the Sisters hope to visit other parts of Italy. In their pilgrimages, they not only pray for all of the Sisters, but for all of the friends and benefactors of the Dominican Sisters of Mary!
