Habemus Prioram = We have a Prioress

Yesterday afternoon under the Presidency of our Bishop, Joseph Strickland of Tyler, TX, we elected a brand-new prioress: Sister Mary Margaret, OP.


Sister was born in Aurora IL and originally entered the Dominican Sisters of Springfield IL. Shortly before her final vows she discerned her vocation to the cloister and came to Lufkin in 1972. Previous to being elected prioress, Sister Mary Margaret was our Sub-Prioress and in charge of our Print Shop. Sister is very talented artistically, as well as practically and spatially (i.e., she would have been a good engineer). Sister is also our Liturgist and principal organist. So please pray for her, she has her hands full! And pray for us as well. The rest of the community now awaits their new work assignments for the next three years.



We want to also take this opportunity to express deep thanks to Sister Maria Guadalupe who concluded her six years of totally selfless service to our community. God reward you, Sister!
