Sinsinawas install new prioress
Sr. Antoinette (Toni) Harris, OP, who ministered on the Oneida Reservation near Green Bay from 1974 to 1984, has been named the new Prioress of the Sinsinawa Dominicans of Sinsinawa, Wis.
Since 1994, Sr. Harris has served as director of the Anawim Center in Chicago, an interfaith spiritual center for Native Americans and an ethnic ministry of the Chicago Archdiocese. She is also working toward a law degree from the John Marshall College of Law, Chicago.
Sr. Harris was elected during her congregation's General Chapter in February, then formally installed into office with the rest of her new General Council at the Installation Ceremony on July 2.
The Sinsinsaw Dominicans, founded in 1847 by Dominican missionary Fr. Samuel Mazzuchelli, are a Catholic religious congregation of about 850 sisters. They have ministries in 36 states and four countries, and their central mission is "to proclaim the Gospel through the ministry of preaching and teaching."
The Sinsinawa Dominicans also serve in the Green Bay Day through The Bridge-between Retreat Center in rural Denmark.
