Sr. Gladys Echenique represented the Dominican Sisters of Oakford this year at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress. Sr. Gladys joined sisters from Mission San Jose and San Rafael to host a booth of Dominican Women Religious from the West Coast. Sr. Gladys stated after the event, "It was a good experience to be able to be part of the body of Christ among fifty thousand people, especially at this hard time for our brothers and sisters who are refugees, immigrants, and the undocumented. All the liturgies were about these topics. The signs of our time!"
