This August,  Meaghan Boyd, Class of 2011 Salutatorian, will be entering the order of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia. They were founded in Nashville, Tennessee in 1860. For over 150 years, the Congregation has been faithful to the teaching mission of the Church. The sisters presently teach over 15,000 students from preschool through college in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. (

In September, Sr. Mary Strength of Martyrs (Megan Breslin), a third year professed sister with the Servants of the Lord, will depart for her final year of studies in Viterbo, Italy. The Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará, a religious community of Diocesan Right, was founded by Rev. Carlos Miguel Buela on March 19, 1988 in San Rafael, Argentina. The Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará and The Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE), comprised of religious priests and brothers, make up the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word. They have over 1200 sisters in convents throughout the world serving in 35 countries. (

Please keep both of these young women in your prayers as they pursue God’s will.
