Five leaders of the Dominican Sisters of Peace were installed for six-year terms during a ceremony Aug. 8, the feast of St. Dominic, in Columbus, Ohio.

The new prioress, Sister Pat Twohill, is the second prioress of the Dominican Sisters of Peace, which formed in 2009 with the merging of seven Dominican communities, including the Dominican Sisters of St. Catharine, Ky. She succeeds Sister Margaret Ormond.

The community also installed four councilors. They are: Sisters Therese Leckert, Gemma Doll, Gene Poore and Anne Lythgoe.

The Dominicans have 528 sisters and 600 associate members who minister in 26 states, as well as in Peru, Honduras and Nigeria.
