January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, was the perfect
backdrop for the Dominican Family’s January gathering. As we
remembered the visit of the magi and the migration of the Holy Family,
we learned about the reality for migrants at the border between Mexico
and Texas. A delegation from the Dominican Sisters of Houston and
Houston Dominican Family participated in the Border Awareness
Experience in July and shared their reflections at Monday’s gathering.
Laura Henderson shared a recap of the group’s trip, which was organized
through Annunciation House in El Paso, TX. Anne Doyle, Judy
McCullough, Don McCullough and Ceil Roeger, OP also shared their
reflections from their immersion. This is clearly a complex,
devastating issue that spurred great table conversation, and hopefully
some action from our Houston Dominican Family. For more information

FYI: The next night after the meeting Frontline
aired an episode about the El Paso border: pbs.org/video/targetin...
The Dominican Family brought many donations for the
Nativity School, in celebration of the Epiphany. Thanks to Krystle
Powell for organizing and delivering our gifts!
