We all know this year's gathering is in Weber Center in Adrian from July 23-26. This is the last event at Weber Center. I hope you have considered sending in your registration and memberships.
We have happy news to report regarding our gatherings in 2015 and 2016. Through the hard work of Mary Pat Reid and Pat Daly along with the support of local membership we are happy to announce we have sites for those two gatherings. As we had shared many motherhouses have had renovations that preclude our meeting there and this has not been an easy task.
We realize some of you may need to budget for these Gatherings and so are sending you the dates and places now.
Happily both are on the grounds of Dominican Motherhouses:
DIA Gathering 2015 will take place at Heartland Spirituality Center in Great Bend, Kansas. It is a ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Peace and is located on the grounds of the Great Bend Motherhouse and has the chapel designed by INAI as well as Dominican hospitality. It will take place Wednesday July 22 through Saturday, July 25, 2015.
DIA Gathering 2016 will take place at the retreat center at Racine, WI from Wednesday July 27 through Saturday, July 30, 2016.
We hope you will mark your calendars for these future gatherings.
I hope you have seen the last email which involved website opportunities for sisters and associates for the sisters grant for ncr. I hope you will take advantage of it.
Congratulations to Alyce Van Acker OP who is having a 40 year retrospective this month. We hope to know more soon so we can publicize it. If you are having a show or special event please let us know.
