The Dominican Sisters of Mary will be featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show on Tuesday, November 23rd.
This is a new show that includes interviews with Mother Assumpta, Sr. Joseph Andrew, Sr. Mary Samuel, Sr. John Dominic and other Sisters; as well as on-site filming of the First and Final Profession Masses and this year’s Entrance Day, during which we welcomed 22 Aspirants.
The show will feature the experience of a Sister entering religious life and the meaning of religious profession as being ‘married’ to Christ.
You may recall that Oprah first reached out to our community on February 9th of this year due to an interest in the hidden aspects of religious life. Click here to watch an excerpt from that program.
The response from the first show was so positive that the Sisters were asked if we would be open to another opportunity to share our life. We have accepted this invitation in the hopes of reaching an audience we might not otherwise reach with the witness of our life and the Gospel. Please join us in praying that the show will be for the good of souls and the honor of God.
The show goes out from 5pm to 6pm ET.
The scheduling at TV6 gives the following fuller details of the show:
The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Mom Who Married a Killer Behind Bars & Other Astonishing Weddings (HD, New, TV-PG) Scheduled: the reasoning behind a mother marrying a convicted killer serving two life sentences; inside a group of nuns most sacred ceremony.
So, a bit of the sublime and bit of the ridiculous - all of life is there!
