Mater Eucharistiae

ATLANTA, August 13, 2013 – The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, are well-known for their Dominic spirituality, teaching missions across the country and publicity from numerous national media outlets. Now, they have entered the realm of music with the release of their first album, MATER EUCHARISTIAE, today with Decca Record Label and De Montfort Music.

The 15-track album, recorded live from the sisters’ chapel in Ann Arbor, Michigan, features songs in both English and Latin, and includes ancient chants, polyphony and original compositions. Some pieces are accompanied by the organ, trumpet and chimes, while others are sung a capella. The album is produced by the 2013 Grammy Award-winning Classical Producer of the Year, Blanton Alspaugh.

“We are truly thrilled to mark today the release date of Mater Eucharistiae, the very beautiful and unique collection of music for all to enjoy from The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist,” said Monica Fitzgibbons, co-founder of De Montfort Music. “These modern day faithful and tireless missionaries of joy and love are generously reaching out to the world through these tremendous songs, and we are so grateful to them and congratulate them on this wonderful artistic work.”

Beginning at 2 p.m. ET Sunday, August 18, EWTN will run a 30-minute HD Special on the Sisters, including a behind the scenes “Making of” their debut recording, Mater Eucharistiae.

About the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist

Canonically established in 1997 by John Cardinal O’Connor of New York, The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist are a young, vibrant community of consecrated women. Their pattern of life is inextricably bound up with the monastic observance given to them by their Dominican tradition. They espouse the common life,  cloister, times and places of silence, the choral Divine Office and daily Mass. They participate in an active charism of education and formation of the young, administering, and teaching in small, private Catholic schools, including the Spiritus Sanctus Academies in Michigan. The founding of the Dominican Sisters of Mary was and remains an all-embracing “yes” in response to the Church’s need for laborers to enter the vineyard to plant, water and yield souls for Christ. Through the witness of their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and a life of prayer and of apostolic service, the Dominican Sisters of Mary seek to transform the world for the good of souls.
