News clip of Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, Michigan

Back during the 2006 RICL conference with Alcuin Reid and others, I had the pleasure of meeting a handful of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, the Mother of the Eucharist whose convent is near Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Recently a news story was aired on NBC. You can click here to see the video -- you'll have to put up with a preliminary commercial, be forewarned.

Incidentally, aside from the rapid growth of this particular Dominican community (which has apparently risen from 4 to over 70 sisters in a matter of a decade), one of the things I most noted about this community is their astounding (and new) chapel:

One wonders if they have, or have any plans, to try to get the (at least) occasional celebration of the Dominican rite liturgy in this beautiful chapel as well.

If they do, I hope they might record it, or, if the public is allowed, to advertise such so that we might avail ourselves at times to this rich and wonderful liturgical treasure of the Church, and enjoy the company of these fine sisters and their beautiful foundation.
