Celebrating 175 Years
Exuding Love while Spreading the Gospel

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?

Mary Ann Carroll, OP

I am so grateful for being a Sinsinawa Dominican Sister. I have always felt so supported by our leadership and our membership. I feel so blessed for the many educational, ministerial, and community opportunities that have been mine. I have no regrets.
Mary Ann Carroll, OP

Catherine Houtakker, OP

I enjoy following in the steps of Father Samuel Mazzuchelli, OP, and other Sisters and enjoy the prayer life we have.
Catherine Houtakker, OP

 

Laurie Brink, OP

I love that we are all smart, talented, and on occasion humble. I love that I can freely exercise the gifts God has given me for the sake of the mission. No one says, “That’s not what we do. Be like this. . . .”
Laurie Brink, OP

 

Roberta Popara, OP

I love our common Sisterhood and with it the pursuit of participating in God’s mission by bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others through our charism of preaching.
Roberta Popara, OP

 

Marcia Holthaus, OP My life has been so much more than I could have imagined because of the inspiration of Sisters through the years. The quest for study that leads to truth made me go deeper into issues of transformation for myself and our global family. I know that my ministry in parishes was shaped by our ways of communication and leadership sharing. At times in work in the hierarchical Church, a woman can feel invisible and powerless, but the love of the community gave me the strength to share that love with the people of God. The privilege of working on Sister biographies has shown me again and again how God worked through each one’s life to build up the kindom. Their lives inspire me, and it is so good to tell each story.
Marcia Holthaus, OP

Elizabeth Rodkewich, OP I love being part of an energetic and joyful group of women carrying out the gospel message.

Eileen Brynda, OP I am deeply grateful to be a small part of something bigger especially as I hear of the many ministries and accomplishments of our Sisters. I also love the support we show for one another even when a person doesn’t know the other well! We are blessed with efficient, caring coworkers and caring Associates.
Eileen Brynda, OP


Priscilla Wood, OP I love the gift we are to one another and our support, love, and care for one another, and our roots, our strong and courageous history, and the gift of Father Samuel Mazzuchelli, OP.
Priscilla Wood, OP
