You are invited to attend an event we are hosting at the Dominican Sisters Motherhouse in Fremont. The event, “Women Deacons? A Dialogue” sponsored by our Center for Education and Spirituality (CES,) will be held on Saturday, April 8 from 10 am to 3 pm. Bishop Randolph Calvo is our main presenter, with input from Sister Gloria Marie Jones, OP and Sister Mary Peter Traviss, OP, and will include panel and audience participation. A luncheon is included. I have attached the flyer. We are hoping to reach all the sisters in the Bay Area and beyond, so invite any friends to be part of this timely and interesting topic. If you have questions, please call S. Ingrid Clemmensen, OP at 925-878-5803 or call the number on the flyer. View Flyer

The Things That Make for Peace: Contemplation and Peacemaking
During May, Dominicans from diverse parts of the country will facilitate retreats at Siena Retreat Center in Racine, WI. Margaret Mayce, OP, a Dominican sister of Amityville and a representative of the Dominican sisters to the United Nations, will consider The Things That Make for Peace: Contemplation and Peacemaking. This will be a careful, contemplative reflection of those places where our wounds intersect with the wounds of our broken world. Our capacity to take this inner journey is what will ultimately enable us and others to be peace.
