Dominican sisters in Squamish, B.C. were filled with joy Aug. 11 as one of their own celebrated 60 years since entering religious life.

Sister Mary Magdalen Coughlin, OP, marked the special occasion at Queen of Peace Monastery, where the community is full of creative women; Sister Coughlin once studied pottery in university and now prays while she creates pots, carvings, and sculptures to support the community.
