About Sister Kathleen McGrail: My time in religious life has meant everything. Certainly, at 18, I had no idea what I was getting into and where this would all lead. I had a wonderful family life, with 13 years of Catholic education. That was my primer for religious life. Those solid beginnings were the fertile ground for my continued growth and development as a Dominican sister. I have had rich experiences in community living and meaningful friendships along the way. In areas of spirituality, prayer, social justice and the call of the Gospel, I have been formed by my Dominican family and Dominican study: and, of course, by all those with whom and for whom I have served in ministry. This has been a blessed life which has brought me much joy.
