On Friday, February 28, the Racine Dominicans concluded the process of electing the three women who will lead their community for the next four years. In their Chapter of Elections, an all-community meeting held from February 23-28, they identified community directions to guide their mission into the future. Concluding the process was the election of their new president and two vice presidents to lead them on that course.
The new Executive Committee will begin their term July 1. SisterMaryann McMahon (center) will serve as president; Sisters Agnes Johnson (right) and Kathy Slesar will serve as vice presidents. Sister Sharon Simon has served on the Racine Dominican Executive Committee for the past twelve years. Sister Agnes will begin her ninth year and Sister Kathy will begin her fifth year in leadership.
We congratulate our new leaders. Please hold our current and future leaders in prayer.
