Notre Dame's "Nun Run"
Yesterday morning we had the pleasure of meeting 13 young women from Notre Dame University, St. Mary's College, and Holy Cross College. Sr. Maria Gemma and Sr. Benedicta, Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, are accompanying the women on a "nun run"--a whirlwind tour to multiple different religious communities for women discerning religious life. Their caravan (actually, just a 15-passenger van and SUV) arrived in time for our 7:15 Mass. Afterwards they enjoyed (hopefully!) a delicious breakfast of scones before meeting with our community. The visit began with a little twist. Instead of the women asking us questions, we threw a few at them. The questions had to do with our community or Dominican trivia. Whoever was the first to answer correctly won one of the books we publish! Then they had a chance to ask us questions before it was time for them to race off to Steubenville, Ohio for the next community on their list.
