In Memoriam


Sister Jean (Jean Bernard) Denomme, OP“In the skies we try to imagine the immensity and potentiality of the universe. In one another we perceive hidden dimensions of thought, feeling, and emotion that make us mysteries to ourselves and to one another. Whether it is sky, earth or one another we scan, it is the hidden Presence we seek.”Jean Denomme, Where is this God of Yours? For Those Who Wonder…(Universe, 2010)

(1931 – 2014)
Sister Carol Jean Kesterke, Chapter Prioress of Great Lakes Dominican Chapter, began the wake service for Jean Denomme, on August 4 with the following reflection: “We know Jean was an educator, a life-long learner, an avid reader, a lover of opera as well as a compassionate, fearless woman who possessed a keen mind. She sought answers, probed for clarity, challenged and questioned everything! Ambiguity did not intimidate her; she was driven in her search for understanding…Jean just couldn’t help herself; her book title even ends in a question mark…Really?
