This May, Gilmary Gonzalez '16, Mimi Mitima '14, Stefanie Seslar, alumni associate, and Leanna Velez '15 participated in the Dominican Preaching in Action Conference at Molloy College on Long Island.  Part of the conference brought them into New York City to meet with Margaret Mayce, O.P., NGO representative at the United Nations.  In addition to their meeting with Sr. Margaret, more than 60 students and mentors learned about the Dominican family of saints including St. Dominic, St. Rose of Lima, St. Mary Magdalene and St. Catherine of Siena, enacted by Nancy Murray, O.P., who will be visiting Albertus in January 2014.  Focusing on the four pillars of the Dominican tradition - service, community, spirituality and study - the conference taught participants the importance of and how to preach and advocate in the local and global communities in which we live.
