What's Happening


March 18, 2022, Detroit – “We all have something to do with our life and we want to be our own best self, but we [also] want to give back. … I feel blessed that I was called to religious life.”

Those are the words of Sister Nancyann Turner, OP, an Adrian Dominican Sister for more than 60 years, as she led off a podcast featuring Sisters from the Archdiocese of Detroit. The podcast was posted on the website of the archdiocese in recognition of Catholic Sisters Week, held annually March 8-14, 2022.

In the podcast, Sister Nancyann spoke of her attraction to the Adrian Dominican Sisters, who taught her in grade school and high school. “They were very impressive,” she recalled. “They had lots of joy, community, support of us students, a sense that they cared for us, and they really stood for something bigger than themselves. That sort of intrigued me.”

The podcast includes Sister Nancyann’s description of her various ministries over the years, including her 20 years of service in the Rosa Parks Children’s and Youth Program at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit (pictured above).

Also featured in the podcast are Sister Felicity Marie Madigan, CSSF, a Felician Sister; Sister Carla Reyna, of the newly established Women of Jesus’ Merciful Passion community; and Sister Dominic Maria St. Michael, OP, a member of the Cloistered Dominican Sisters at the Monastery of the Blessed Sacrament in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
