Ashram Opens in Adrian
MI, December 26, 2006 --The Dominican Ashram, formerly housed by
the Dominicans in Kenosha, WI, has reopened at the Motherhouse of
the Adrian Dominicans in Michigan. Don Goergen, OP (St. Albert)
reports that the house of prayer is open and ready to recieve guests
in the new year.
The property in Kenosha has been sold. The community expressed
its gratitude to the Kenosha Dominican Sisters for the generosity
that made the ashram there possible. "We are also grateful
to the Adrian Dominican Sisters for making the continuation of the
Ashram possible by offering us a beautiful facility and setting
on their property in Adrian", said Don.

there were four members in the community: Jim Barnett, Donald Goergen,
Rosemary Henley (now deceased) and Giles Klapperich. Over the years
members left and new ones came. Present members are Mary Lois Carey
(Sinsinawa), Donald Goergen (St. Albert), Pat Horan (Blauvelt),
