Are you a woman wondering what life might be like as a religious sister? Then sign up for “Dubuque’s Got Sisters!” and get ready for a unique experience. Dubuque, Iowa area religious communities (including the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters) are offering an opportunity to come together with sisters and other women who are asking how to best serve the people of God. Join us for prayer, conversation, and a chance to get to know communities of women who continue to serve people on the margins. There is no fee to attend.
The “Dubuque’s Got Sisters!” event begins Friday, Nov. 1 at 5 p.m. and ends Saturday, Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. To register or for more details, e-mail Sister Lou Anglin, BVM, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at (563) 588-2351. “Dubuque’s Got Sisters!” is sponsored by the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters (Wis.), Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and Dubuque Franciscan Sisters.
The retreat will be held at Mount Carmel, the motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, situated atop the beautiful bluffs of the Mississippi River. “We are glad to jointly offer this opportunity to women who are interested in religious life. Sisters in the Dubuque area collaborate in many ways to offer service, speak out for justice issues, and pray together. It seemed quite natural to come together to offer ‘Dubuque’s Got Sisters’ as well,” said Sister Lou Anglin, BVM, who will be one of the Sisters accompanying the group.
