A life of service: Holy Names Sister Mary Annette Dworshak

Sister Mary Annette Dworshak grew up in Miles City, Montana, where she was inspired by the Ursuline and Edmonds Dominican sisters who taught her. Her uncle, Bishop Leo F. Dworschak of Fargo, North Dakota, told her that becoming a religious sister would mean exploring the world with new eyes and insights. But she never imagined she would collaborate on her community’s official stands on water rights, human trafficking, and immigrants and refugees; study at the International School of Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem; or travel with a Leadership Conference of Women Religious delegation to Mexico in support of fair-trade coffee growers and women’s weaving cooperatives.
