The friars of St Saviour’s were recently honoured to be visited by a young Irish woman who is joining the postulancy of the Dominican Sisters of St Cecilia, in Nashville, Tennessee. Clare Kavanagh (pictured with some of the brothers) first came across the Nashville Dominicans on the blog of our vocations director, showing the value of the internet apostolate!
The sisters in Nashville have, in recent years, experienced something of a vocations boom – the average age of the sisters is in the mid-30s! Their apostolate is teaching, and they teach in schools all over the States, and are beginning to establish a presence in Australia. Fittingly for a congregation under the patronage of St Cecilia, music is also a major part of their lives, and they sing the Divine Office beautifully. If you want to find out more about the life and mission of these sisters, check out this video.
In the meantime, please pray for Clare, and pray for vocations to all branches of the Dominican family!
