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.
