In celebration of the Order of Preachers 800th Year Jubilee, Fr. Lukasz Misko, O.P., pastor of the St. Catherine of Siena Newman Parish at University of Utah in Salt Lake City, is leading a group of students on a Dominican road trip pilgrimage to notable places within the Western Dominican Province. On Monday, they stopped by the monastery to visit with us and get a glimpse of Dominican monastic life.
What a blessing to see young men and women filled with energy and enthusiasm! For most of the students, this was their first visit ever to a cloistered monastery. They had great questions and, in Dominican tradition, we shared refreshments and lots of laughter. All too soon our time was up – we had to return to the chapel for prayer and they were off to see the Dominican ministry at Stanford University before continuing their journey south. Certainly we will be keeping them in prayer as they continue their trip and return to their studies.
If you are involved in a parochial school, CCD program, campus ministry or young adults ministry and are interested in arranging a group visit with our community, please feel free to contact Sister Joseph Marie at DominicanNuns@nunsmenlo.org for more information.
