Dominican Sisters of Peace: ‘School Visit an Education for Sisters and St. Mary’s Dominican High School’
New Orleans, LA – Zimbabwe and Zambia are two neighboring states in South Africa. Despite the distance of more than 400 miles between them, two Dominican sisters are connected through their work in education. Both Sisters are members of the Dominican Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and are sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Peace as they earn advanced degrees in Education at Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, OH.
Next January, Sr. Hilda Chanyau, O.P. will become principal at Emerald School for the Deaf in Harare, Zimbabwe.
