Oprah Show Featuring Dominican Sisters Will Replay Aug. 16, 17

The Oprah Winfrey Show that featured the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist -- some of whom teach in Ave Maria -- will be shown again next week. In Ave Maria, the program will be broadcast Monday, Aug. 16, at 4 p.m. on Channel 5 and Tuesday, Aug. 17, at 9 a.m. on Channel 6.

The sisters' appearance on Oprah originally aired in February. Click here for Ave Herald story on the original broadcast. A few weeks after the program aired, Sr. Teresa Benedicta related how at the end of the broadcast, the nuns presented Oprah with rosary beads and taught her to pray The Rosary.

The order, which is one of the fastest-growing women's religious orders in the United States, recently had five sisters make their Perpetual Profession of Vows, and eight sisters made their First Profession of Vows. Click here for more from the sisters' website.

One of the main missions of the order is teaching, and in addition to teaching at the Rhodora Donahue Academy in Ave Maria, more than 30 other sisters will be teaching this year in Phoenix, AZ, Sacramento, CA, Hilton Head, SC, Ave Maria, FL, Austin, TX,, Buda, TX; and at the order's Spiritus Sanctus Academies in Ann Arbor and Plymouth, MI.
