Suzanne Schreiber Makes Final Profession

ADRIAN, MI [July 24, 2006] --Suzanne Schreiber, OP, celebrated her Rite of Perpetual Profession as an Adrian Dominican Sister on July 9 in Holy Rosary Chapel on the Adrian Dominican Sisters campus. She was given a ring symbolizing her permanent commitment as a vowed member.

In the company of friends, family and numerous Adrian Dominican Sisters, Sister Sue offered her statement of intent: “My intent, my desire, is to go more deeply into the mystery of God, through Jesus Christ, in Dominican prayer, study, community and ministry. I will continue to bring my gifts into harmony with the Mission and Vision of the Adrian Dominican Congregation which serves on the prophetic edge of our church and world. I promise to give, receive and listen, to be and bring peace, to continue to weave threads of relationship, and to travel an authentic Dominican spiritual path as did our sisters who have gone before us. My desire is to walk lightly on the earth, to live fully our common life as an Adrian Dominican Sister, and to take my place in the worldwide Dominican family.”

A Detroit native, Sister Sue will begin ministering as the communications coordinator at Regina Dominican High School in Wilmette, Illinois, in August. Regina Dominican is an Adrian Dominican sponsored institution. A teacher for most of her life at the elementary, high school and college levels, Sister Sue taught art, photography and religious studies, and served as a campus minister. A musician and photographic artist, Sister Sue has shown her work in exhibits and at art fairs. From 1996 to 2001, she served as the Assistant Dean of the Institute for Ministry at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit.
