How much we have learned, seen and been a part of since we began our journey at the CDN just three weeks ago!
Our opening Mass for the school year at Aquinas Institute (www.ai.edu) was attended by novices, priests, sisters and brothers, as well as lay people all searching for knowledge through faith. God’s sense of humor was present the moment we walked through the door. Krissie sang in the choir, Kelly brought up the gifts, Chris shared the reading, and Joye was Eucharistic Minister. Megan did a wonderful job as “congregational participant”. The Dominican women were present indeed!
Being open and willing. In this short time together, we have shared prayer, brought out our culinary talents (really), discovered our surroundings, and learned we can travel together for 6 hours in one car! During our trip to St. Catharine, KY (home of the first Dominican community in the USA), our past and our present were examples of perseverance and faith. “We are many parts” is certainly apparent as we learned the gift of the “Dominican Family”.
We continue to thank each of you for your interest in our journey, for your prayers, love and support. This year will be one of challenges and new discoveries. We will seek to know God better, and who it is we are becoming. We hope you enjoy all we have to share, and we look forward to your comments as the Spirit moves you to do.
“This is what God asks of you: only this, to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God.” - Micah 6
