Rejoice and celebrate! 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the Mary Nona McGreal, OP Center for Dominican Historical Studies! It seems like yesterday when on May 23, 2008, Mary Ellen O’Grady, OP, the executive director of the Dominican Leadership Conference and Donna Carroll, president of Dominican University, blessed the McGreal Center at Dominican University. In the coming months we will describe the WHY, WHAT and WHO of the McGreal Center. We hope that you enjoy reading about the establishment of the Center, the collections of documents and resources that it holds, our current work, especially Dominicans on Mission Selected Essays. Above all, you will meet the people who make the McGreal Center a vibrant reality and a very enjoyable place to work!

Movie Review by Fr. Tom Condon, O.P.
The Shape of Water is the latest film from director Guillermo del Toro. It has been described in many ways, perhaps best as an “adult fairy tale.” It’s a beautiful, imaginative film in so many ways, and is already receiving several mentions in the end of the year awards.
The Shape of Water tells the story of Elisa Esposito (Sally Hawkins), a lonely, mute woman who lives in an apartment above a movie theater in Baltimore, circa 1960. Her neighbor and friend is a lonely gay man named Giles (Richard Jenkins). Elisa works as a cleaning woman at a top secret defense institution with her other friend Zelda (Octavia Spencer).
