I just received this email this morning and I wanted to pass along the really fantastic news! In addition to this great news, set your DVRs for the week before Turkey Day. The Sisters will be making another appearance on Oprah!
The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, has signed a purchase and sale agreement to buy the 3900 Harewood Road property in Washington, D.C., to be used as a House of Studies for the continuing education and formation of our Sisters. We are still in the inspection phase of this agreement.
We believe that the ultimate acquisition of this building, currently housing the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center, represents an opportunity that is aligned with the visions of our community, Pope John Paul II and the Archdiocese of Detroit. It is a wonderful way to build upon the intention of the Center to bring the message of His Holiness to contemporary culture and promote vocations, and it provides yet another connection to his influence in our community and the incredibly generous donors to all these venerable institutions.
As we continue the due diligence of the facility, we do so in prayer and discernment as we seek God’s will in our Community and our lives.
