Emily (Barry ’11) Sullivan

Emily (Barry ’11) Sullivan returned to her alma mater last weekend to lead a retreat for the women of Thomas Aquinas College, “Fiat: On the Dignity and Vocation of Women.” Sponsored by Endow, a Catholic educational apostolate, the retreat included a series of talks on Pope Saint John Paul II’s encyclical Mulieris Dignitatem, as well the Stations of the Cross, the Liturgy of the Hours, a Rosary procession, Mass, and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
