Sister Mary Murray, President, noted that “In their short time in the community each of these Sisters has demonstrated commitment to our Mission and a love and appreciation for the four pillars of Dominican life—prayer, study, community, and mission. Their love of religious life and willingness to deepen their commitment is an inspiration to all of us! May each Sister continue to grow in her love and knowledge of her religious vocation.”
