Catholic Sisters Week: Sister Mary Lou Dummer

Catholic Sisters Week

Catholic Sisters Week is from March 8-14, 2022. This week is a celebration of the lives and legacies of Catholic Sisters that occurs every year as part of National Women’s History Month.



I was often challenged by the words of Ps. 46:10, ”Be still and know that I am God." Now during this year of COVID-19, I no longer consider these words a challenge, but they have become a blessing. In the midst of isolation, distancing, and restrictions, I want to focus on pandemic blessings rather than limitations. During this time, I find myself responding again and again to the words of Jesus when he said to his tired apostles, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while” (Mark 6) and I discover many blessings.
