March 4, 2021, Washington, D.C. – Cardinal Wilton Gregory, of the Archdiocese of Washington, has had strong ties to Catholic Sisters since he first attended St. Carthage School in Chicago. Taught by Adrian Dominican Sisters there, he was inspired to convert to Catholicism and to become a priest. An article on Cardinal Gregory’s rapport with religious Sisters cites a statement of support by the Adrian Dominican Sisters when then-Archbishop Gregory was named the first African-American Cardinal. Read the entire article by Josephine Von Dohlen in The Catholic Standard, newspaper of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C.

March 3, 2021, Adrian, Michigan – Are you in need of eight minutes of quiet, reflective time to appreciate the beauty of black and white photography, music, and reflective quotes? Sister Suzanne Schreiber, OP, offers this time in a video of her photography exhibit at INAI Gallery, adjacent to Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
The exhibit of Sister Suzanne’s photography, “Quiet Places, Sacred Spaces,” opened at INAI: A Space Apart, in early March 2020, but the gallery was closed later that month because of COVID-19 protocols. “I learned how to make the exhibit into a movie to share,” she said. “It has been quite a learning experience to gain skills that I can use in the future.”
“Quiet Places, Sacred Spaces” features photographs that Sister Suzanne took from far and near: from Detroit and Lenawee County, Michigan, to the Dominican cloister at Regensburg, Germany, to Ireland. Watch Sister Suzanne’s video.
