About one week ago, 17 young women entered the Dominican Sisters of Mary Mother of the Eucharist in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was a day of great jubilation. In just 14 years, this religious order has grown from 4 to over 120 sisters. The average age of all of the sisters is 28. These sisters are some of the most joyful people on Earth, and I have had the pleasure of getting to know them. What an inspiration their vocation is. It is so deeply needed in the Church.
They also love the Jesuits! They passionately pray for and encourage Jesuit vocations. Fr. Tomasek, SJ, the late Jesuit mentioned below, was one of their greatest supporters.
For my vows, they sent me a card with countless messages from the sisters. If you would like to learn more or to donate to their wonderful order, visit: http://sistersofmary.org
