It was such a blessing hosting the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecelia on Sunday and Monday. Sister Mary Michael and Sister Mary Emily were delightful and spirit-filled. Sister Mary Michael spoke with all our school children on Monday. As you can imagine, the children had many questions for the sisters. One of my favorite was “What are those chains hanging down from you?” (The full-size rosaries as part of their habits.”) It surprised me that the boys had as many questions as the girls. Our hope is that the sisters sowed seeds of curiosity and admiration of their dedication to Christ and His Church. I loved how sister encouraged all the children to “Keep listening for God.”
Thank you to everyone who showed the sisters such gracious hospitality during their brief stay.
Those who set up the refreshments for their evening talk, the Ramos family for hosting the sisters at dinner and Mrs. Lori LaPlante for arranging their itinerary, lodging and transportation. Thank you to those families who made a sacrifice to attend the presentation on Monday evening and to those who purchased one of the books.
