Sister Dolores Conley

Many years ago, probably when I was a novice, I discovered my favorite quote in the Holy Rule of St. Benedict in the Prologue, verse 49: “As we progress in this way of life and in faith, we shall run on the path of God’s commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love.” Yes, ever since, I have been running. My life progressed with many opportunities for developing a solid spiritual life as well as academically and physically, including ballet for liturgical dance and swimming.

As an artist, I have completed the Stations of the Cross done in ceramic clay depicting the hands of Christ. Designing and forming the hands of Christ has been a spiritual revival for me. I love creating handmade paper and turning it into greeting cards, angels, fairies, quilts and figures for display and sale.

Along with creating works of art, I love to help others stretch their imaginations and create beauty with their own hands.  I started Exploring the Arts Studio at St. Athanasius Community Center in West View, Pennsylvania where I teach a wide range of art classes for children and adults. 

My life has been most blessed but the greatest blessing has been the support and love of my sisters in Christ.
