San Juan, Mexico, Pampanga, Philippines
Made Final Profession
March 4, 2017
I worked previously as a Client Representative form Indoor and Backdoor Sea and Air Freight.
I am the Coordinator of our Dominican Aeta Ministry here in the Philippines. We serve the Aeta people.
Travelling and discovering new places, meeting new people, and playing volleyball.
What drew me to the Adrian Dominican Sisters
Their passion in mission and the unity of the Sister's respect and love for each other despite their differences in culture, traditions, and perspective.
What excites me about religious life today
Living out our vows and the commitment of each Sister. Those who professed and expressed their willingness to die as religious gives me hope that there are still people who are willing to offer themselves for the church and for the mission of Christ.
Sister Sharon Weber, OP, PhD
With the exception of the six-year term she served as Vicaress of the Congregation, Sister Sharon Weber’s ministry has been focused on higher education for more than four decades.
The holder of a PhD in chemistry from the University of Michigan, Sister Sharon was on the chemistry faculty at Siena Heights University for many years, and for a time also served as chairperson of the division, before becoming the university’s academic dean. For several years, she held the dual responsibilities of academic dean and vice president for academic affairs before focusing solely on the latter position. In that capacity, she oversees the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Professional Studies, and the Graduate College.
Sister Mariane Fahlman, OP, PhD
Promoting health and physical activity has long been Sister Mariane’s calling. As a professor and coordinator of health education at Wayne State University, she works with undergraduates who are learning how to teach health and physical education and with graduate students who are health professionals.
Her research interests include the effects of exercise on the elderly (funded by the National Institutes of Health) and nutrition research in the Detroit Public Schools (funded by grants from the Michigan Nutrition Network).
Sister Mariane’s honors include the Vern Seefeldt Lifetime Achievement Award; the Wayne State University President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching; and the Michigan Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance’s University Educator of the Year award.
