Sr. Mary Regina, O.P., is the principal of St. Michael’s School. She is grateful to serve in response to the Most Reverend Frederick F. Campbell’s 2011 invitation to the Dominican Sisters of Mary to come to the Diocese of Columbus to teach and administer St. Michael School. Since then, several Sisters have joined the staff annually, educating and forming the young people in the Faith. The Sisters are continuing the tradition of Dominicans educating and witnessing to the vocation of religious life in Ohio, which dates back to the 19th century. They encourage all to respond to the universal vocation to holiness through a life of virtue, especially through the Disciple of Christ-Education in Virtue® faith curriculum taught at St. Michael School.
