Adrian Dominican Sisters Volunteer to Work with Immigrants at the Border

April 23, 2021, McAllen and San Antonio, Texas – Adrian Dominican Sisters Nancy Murray, OP, and Mary Jane Lubinski, OP, are among 200 Catholic Sisters who are now serving immigrants who have come across the U.S.-Mexico border seeking a new home with family members and friends in the United States. They are responding to a request for help from Catholic Charities USA and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and will eventually be joined in their volunteer service on the border by other Adrian Dominican Sisters.

Sister Nancy – taking a break during the pandemic from her ministry of portraying St. Catherine of Siena at parishes and other venues around the world – is serving at the Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center in McAllen, Texas. Sister Mary Jane, on sabbatical after seven years of leadership service with the Adrian Dominican Sisters, is working in San Antonio, Texas, with teenage boys who have come across the border.

Adrian Dominican Sister Donna Markham, OP, PhD, President and CEO of Catholic Charities USA, recently made her own visit to the border near El Centro, California, to see first-hand the immigration crisis at the border.
