Dominican Sisters to Appear Again on 'Oprah'

We are loath to recommend that anyone watch 'Oprah,' but if you were to make an exception, the second appearance of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist on Tuesday, November 23, might be the time to watch. Founded in 1997 with just 4 Sisters, they have grown to over 100 Sisters in just 13 years, and the average age is 26. This vibrant and fast-growing community of women religious gives great hope and is a sign of God's grace for our country and the Church.

One of the nation’s most thriving religious communities has announced that some of its members will be featured for a second time this year on the Oprah Winfrey Show. The show will air on November 23.

“The response from the first show was so positive that the Sisters were asked if we would be open to another opportunity to share our life,” the community said in a statement. “We have accepted this invitation in the hopes of reaching an audience we might not otherwise reach with the witness of our life and the Gospel. Please join us in praying that the show will be for the good of souls and the honor of God.”
