Mission Appeal by Sister Anele Heiges

As part of our commitment to global missionary work, our parish community will welcome Sister Anele Heiges, OP, an Adrian Dominican Sister, to be with us at our masses next weekend. She will share the story of her Congregation’s missionary work and invite you to partner with the Sisters through your prayer and financial support.

The Adrian Dominican Sisters are an international Congregation of vowed women
religious whose roots go back to St. Dominic in the 13th century. They are committed to their Vision that calls them to seek truth, make peace and reverence life. The Sisters minister in a variety of professions that flow from the traditional works of education, health care and social work. Today, they are also involved in community organizing and other works of justice and peace, as well as ministries in law, the arts, science, business, pastoral care and administration. They strive to address the critical
needs of society and serve where they are called.
