28 women to enter Nashville Dominicans

Catholic World News - August 06, 2013

28 young women will enter the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia on August 15, according to the Diocese of Nashville.

On July 22, 11 sisters professed perpetual vows, and on July 25, 12 novices made their first profession of vows. On July 27, 16 postulants began their novitiate.

The congregation’s charism includes devotion to Mass and the Blessed Sacrament, the choral recitation of the Divine Office and Rosary, the wearing of the habit, and reverence for the Magisterium, according to the congregation’s website. Nashville Dominican sisters teach in over 40 schools.

    Show a young woman something she can hang her habit on and she will respond. A simple charism to follow but too many orders wrap themselves around social justice issues exclusively and have lost sight of their founding focus on furthering the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ.

    Good news. Maybe their schoolchildren will be the generation that leads us out of the mess we are in here. God bless their ministry.
