April 6, 2020, Adrian, Michigan – Like Catholic Sisters in communities throughout the world, Adrian Dominican Sisters are adapting to new ways of living during COVID-19 pandemic. In an interview with the National Catholic Reporter’s Global Sisters Report, Prioress Patricia Siemen, OP, explains some of the adaptations, from watching daily and Sunday Masses, wakes, and funerals on television or via live stream to eating meals in their rooms rather than communally. “Each day is a new challenge because there is more information about the spread of COVID-19," Sister Patricia told Global Sisters Report. "It becomes more real that our normal way of life is no more." Read about how various communities of women religious have responded to COVID-19 and scroll down about a third of the way to read Sister Patricia’s report.
