Columbus, OH – “Honey, are you hungry?” These words are often heard by a teenage girl on the streets of Columbus, OH. She is dirty and hungry, and despite the fact that she will be with as many as 10 men today, she is alone and unloved. But to Sister Nadine Buchanan, OP, this girl is an angel in disguise – and those simple words open a door to hope and love.

May 5, 2017, Washington, D.C. – A number of Adrian Dominican Sisters, Associates, and friends braved the heat and crowds of Washington, D.C., to express their commitment and concern for Earth and her inhabitants. The group – along with students from Siena Heights University in Adrian – were participating in the People’s Climate March on April 29.
“We recognize, with Pope Francis and people of faith everywhere, that climate change is a moral issue that threatens creation, places added burdens on poor people, and compromises the common good of all. As Earth Day quickly approaches, as does the Climate March and the Feast of our Dominican St. Catherine of Siena, the Paris 2015 and Beyond Committee of the DSC has prepared a Climate Novena that will take us from the Eve of Earth Day to April 29th, which is both St. Catherine’s feast, and the day of the Climate March. We know that Catherine our sister would approve . . . We invite you to participate as you are able, and to share this freely with others.”
A new page will be posted every day until April 29th. Please click here for the Climate Novena.
