November 14, 2018, Adrian, Michigan – The day before her departure to Iraq, Sister Rose Ann Schlitt, OP, spoke to WTOL-TV reporter Tyler Paley about the mission of solidarity that she and two other Dominican women were about to undertake. Sister Rose Ann, Adrian Dominican Sister Nancy Jurecki, OP, and Gloria Escalona, of the Dominican Laity of the St. Albert the Great Province, hope to be a presence of support and solidarity to the Dominican Sisters of the Congregation of St. Catherine of Iraq. The Sisters from Iraq, after ISIS drove them out of their convents and ministries on the Nineveh Plains, spent three years as internally displaced persons, ministering with other refugees. They returned to their homes last year to find their churches and convents demolished by ISIS. Watch the interview with Tyler Paley. You may also follow the delegation on Facebook.
