Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids
Featured on “A Nun’s Life Ministry”
Are you familiar with “A Nun’s Life Ministry?” It is an online web site with all kinds of information about Sisters and Nuns. I have been following this web site almost from the time it was founded (in 2006) by Catholic Sisters Maxine Kollasch and Julie Vieira. It reaches out with a pastoral presence to thousands of people worldwide each day, and is a place where you can chat, discern your vocation or ask questions to various Catholic sisters and nuns about community, religious life, ministry, spirituality and more.
Last month two of our Sisters (Sister Orlanda Leyba and Sister Joan Williams) were featured on a pod cast. In a short video clipping, Sister Orlanda shares her joy of being a Dominican Sister! You can hear/watch these by clicking the following links:
