Do you guys remember the Sisters of our childhood? Especially those young ladies when they first arrived at the "house" to become postulants. They'd stand outside a few dozen feet away from the big tree on the fellows field and light up their last cigarette and then wipe off the make up before the followed the older professed Sister into the Sisters quarters to get their new black and white habits. We watched those young woman go through their first years and then become novices and finally assume the full habit of the professed Sisters. Heck, As i recall, there was a time when many of them were only a year or two older than us and they gave up everything to take care of us.

There's a newer group of Dominican Sisters growing by leaps and bounds. They aren't our Dominicans, but they are Dominicans. Several years ago their congregation had dwindled down to 4 older Sisters but now, they are up to 72 Sisters, postulants, novices and professed and they're wearing the habits we remember so well and their numbers are increasing and they need help to complete their mission.

i think it would be a good thing to kick in a few dollars to help them accomplish their mission.it wouldn't hurt to mention to them where we come from and who we owe in a large part what we have become.
