February 20, 2018, Lansing, Michigan – Three Adrian Dominican Sisters were among 15 women featured by Faith Magazine of the Diocese of Lansing as women who were first in their field or their office. The 15 women are highlighted on the website of Faith Magazine. The Adrian Dominican Sisters on the list are:
Knowing just a bit about two of these women, the Church is very blessed indeed to be able to recognize their pioneering work. This prompts me to think about all of the firsts with which the congregation has also blessed me. Sr Nadine Foley taught my first adult education bible study, and Sr Dorothy Folliard offered my first biblical Greek instruction. Today I have an M.A. in Biblical Languages and I am so grateful, not only for them, but for everything and everyone the congregation has offered to me. Your names are too numerous to mention in this brief comment, I hope you all know who you are. Praise God!
Congratulations, Sisters. I am delighted to see that your talents and leadership are being recognized by our Church. Brother Edward Driscoll, CFX
