Early in July, we began an extensive renovation of Regina Coeli, the building where our sisters requiring the most nursing care live. About 30 of our sisters living in Regina Coeli have moved temporarily to Rosary Hall until construction is finished.
When complete, the renovation will:
- allow our sisters in need of nursing care better access to our shared prayer, and visits with sisters, associates, family members, and friends;
- increase efficiencies for our nursing coworkers;
- create spaces for visiting, quiet reflection, and more private individualized medical care; and,
- provide gathering spaces with better acoustics for activities and social engagement for our senior sisters.

The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a unique collaboration between the Vatican, an international coalition of Catholic organizations, and “all men and women of good will.”
Under the leadership of Sister Sharon Zayac, a committee of Springfield Dominican Sisters and Associates will oversee the congregation’s process of moving toward sustainability in the seven areas of concern as outlined in the Pope’s encyclical Laudato Si': responding to the cry of the Earth, responding to the cry of the poor, ecological economics, adoption of sustainable lifestyles, ecological education, ecological spirituality, and community action.
