October 28, 2016, St. Louis, Missouri – Sister Katherine Frazier, an Adrian Dominican novice, reflects on the Congregation, comparing it to a symphony. In a blog for the Collaborative Dominican Novitiate in St. Louis, she specifically compares the Adrian Dominican Sisters to Anton Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, the New World Symphony. Like this classic work, the Sisters are rooted in the foundation of the Congregation, but are preaching the Gospel through instruments familiar to the people of our day.

August 11, 2016, Detroit – In her recent blog, Sister Nancyann Turner, OP, describes her reaction to the gradual loss of houses in Detroit neighborhoods – and to the key role that houses play for the people of Detroit. After reflecting on the families who had once occupied some of the now-empty homes, she concludes with a heart-felt prayer that “more and more new and old houses in Detroit will become homes…homes with heart, with beauty, with gardens, with children.” Sister Nancyann ministers with children and youth in inner-city Detroit as program director of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Rosa Parks Children and Youth Program.
