What drew me to the Adrian Dominican Sisters
When I met our Sisters in my country in 1993, I became captivated by their passion to: Preach Truth, Make Peace, and Reverence Life. I also learned to read the Word according to the signs of our times while developing a loving, deep, and intimate relationship with our Beloved God and all creation.

What excites me about religious life today
I am very excited about the many possibilities we have today, as we gather with young sisters from all over the country, sharing and enriching one another with our diverse spiritualties. Thus, I believe in the future of religious life and I feel blessed of being part of it!
