Sister Alice (Dennis) McCormick

What first drew you to the Racine Dominican community?

Racine Dominican Sisters were my teachers at Holy Name School, Kimberly, and St. John’s High School, Little Chute.  These Sisters nurtured my love for learning and for a religious community’s mode of Christian living.

What has kept you in the community all these years?

That same attraction to the pursuit of truth, especially things religious, remains with me.  While I tend not to be in the forefront of activity, I try to promote this ideal in background roles.

What was one particularly cherished memory of your years in ministry?

After Mother Mary Magdalen phoned me in 1965 and asked me to be her secretary, I literally danced for joy—ecstatic over the prospect of moving into secretarial work.

What is one thing people today should know about the Racine Dominicans?

We are a motley crew of God-seekers and provide a welcoming environment for God-seeking.

What do you enjoy doing at this time of your life?

I enjoy living at Siena Center, keeping up with current events, and being inspired by nuggets of wisdom that come my way.
