25th Anniversary Celebration

In 1990, the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs (Columbus, Ohio) challenged themselves to a life-style that honors the graced reality of creation, acknowledges our oneness with creation, and holds us accountable in the use of our resources.  Sisters Jane Belanger, Camilla Smith, and Loretta Forquer responded to that invitation by creating Shepherd’s Corner on land that was owned by the Sisters in Blacklick, Ohio.  Throughout these twenty-five years Shepherd’s Corner has grown into the lived expression of that vision.  It continues today as a Founded Ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Peace.

Join us on September 16th from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm as we celebrate 25 years of caring for Land, Life, and Spirit.
If you celebrated the 20th anniversary with us you may remember this video.

Come and visit the animals, walk the meditation trail & labyrinth, and enjoy a hay ride across the property.  Celebrate with us as we look forward to a continuation of our mission of caring for and conserving this spot of green in Blacklick, Ohio.  Refreshments will be served and Shepherd’s Corner inspired art showcased as a fundraiser for the ecology center.

Artists featured include Donna Nesbitt, Mascazine Art Glass, Sr. Anne Lythgoe, OP, and Sr. Barbara Rapp, OP.
Pricing for these pieces will be set by the artists who created them.
