Sisters of Mary

The nuns who have moved to our parish—in the renovated convent—and will run the parish school, are attending the early morning mass, and it is wonderful to see them there, in their habit and devotional grace.

The Dominican Sisters of Mary of the Eucharist are a new order, attracting much attention—they were on Oprah recently—and we are truly blessed to have them so near to us.

As converts, we really appreciate the religious much more deeply when they are wearing their garments and we have reached the point where without the garments, it is as the old adage, that a person is how they dress, and without the religious garments they are not really religious.

An essay posted on earlier said it so well.
