A leader of renewal in religious life following the Second Vatican Council, Sister Dugan, in the traditions of the Religious of the Cenacle, took initiative in developing spiritual growth opportunities for the laity and throughout her ministerial career provided spiritual guidance and sustenance to scores of people on their journey to a spirituality in depth.
