Two of our Sisters returned yesterday from Trinidad, the most southern of the Caribbean islands, just east of Venezuela. They were gone for three weeks to help the Dominican Nuns at Rosary Monastery in the capital, Port-of-Spain.
Their superior, Sister Ann, had been invited to speak at the closing Congress for Mission for the 800th Jubilee of the founding of the Dominican Order. Sister Ann spoke about how cloistered nuns are preachers in the Dominican Family. She spoke on the last day with other representatives of the Dominican Family: a layman, an apostolic sister and a cooperator brother.
Here are our two sisters: (l. to r.) Sister Mary Christine and Sister Mary Jeremiah. They spent many days harvesting and shelling pigeon peas, a popular local legume.
Our Sisters had hoped to share on the blog while out of the country, but the internet security prevented them from accessing our blog. We will share some of their photographs over the course of the next few days.
