Celebrating 175 Years
Making a Difference in Lives of Others
In each issue of Sinsinawa Spectrum in 2022,
we will print reflections from Sisters who responded to the question,
What do you love most about being a Dominican Sister of Sinsinawa?
|I love everything—the quest and mission in good company with zest, risk, commitment, and joy; the supportive steady leadership; and the spirit of ever newness, consciously participating in the divine energies of goodness, truth, and beauty.
Miriam Brown, OP
|I have loved our Sisters since grade school where I saw their sense of humor and their love for one another, for God, and for their families. Living in community for 54 years has only deepened my love of our Congregation. I have also loved my ministry in elementary schools and my time ministering with our Sisters at Sinsinawa Mound. Yes, relationships are at the heart of ministry and life.
