The Real Story of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist

[ 1 ] December 20, AD 2012 |

Anybody that knows me or follows me on twitter will tell you, I LOVE the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

I live only 15 minutes from their motherhouse convent in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Most Sunday evenings, you will find me sitting in the back of the chapel, listening to their angelic voices fill their glorious chapel as they offer the evening sacrifice of prayer.

Love.

For years, I have searched high and low for the intimate details of their founding. Short of asking Sr. Joseph Andrew or Mother Assumpta themselves, I have wondered and searched of how it happened.

And tonight, I finally found the story. And it’s from Mother Assumpta herself!

I know that I am not alone in my love for Christ’s brides, specifically these Dominican Sisters. So without further ado, the story of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, from Mother Mary Assumpta Long herself.
