Who We Are

Adrian Dominican Sisters are an international Congregation of more than 929 vowed women religious whose roots go back to St. Dominic in the 13th century. We are committed to preaching the Word of God, the formation of community centered on faith, and ministry to further the values of the Gospel among ourselves and in our world.

We minister in 32 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and in four countries (Canada, the Dominican Republic, Italy and South Africa). Responsive to the "signs of the times," we strive to address the needs of the world and to serve where we are called to go.

Our professions developed from the traditional works of education, health care and social work. Our sisters serve as educators, administrators, lawyers, social workers, physicians, nurses, pastoral service ministers, musicians, artists and office workers.

We share a rich variety of professional and life experiences. Together, we continue the Dominican tradition of preaching through our prayer, study, ministry and common life.

More than 180 Associates (married and single men and women) share our journey in preaching the Good News of the Gospel and in bringing about change in our world.

Our main campus (Motherhouse) is in Adrian, Michigan, in the Diocese of Lansing. Located on this campus are the Congregation's administrative offices, Weber Retreat and Conference Center, and the Dominican Life Center (a continuum of care for members of the Congregation).
