January 4, 2021, Stockton, California – Sister Judith Rimbey, OP, was recognized in an article on the website of Stakeholder Health for her role in enabling the local residents of Stockton, California – mostly people of color – to afford their own homes. Sister Judith was the manager of community investment for Dignity Health, a healthcare system that included two hospitals sponsored by the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Under Sister Judith’s leadership, Dignity Health invested funds so that Stocktonians Taking Action to Neutralize Drugs (STAND) could develop properties with affordable housing.

Adrian, Michigan – As U.S. public health officials on March 9, 2020, called for stricter measures of social distancing to mitigate the accelerating community spread of COVID-19 in the United States, the Adrian Dominican Sisters took immediate steps to join in the national effort. Since then, the Congregation has continued to increase its efforts in mitigating the spread.

As of March 10, 2020, the Congregation has suspended:
A task force comprised of the Congregation’s Administrator and lay leaders of the Motherhouse campus are meeting daily to monitor the pandemic and to develop effective mitigation protocols and implement new measures as needed. As conditions warrant, these suspensions may be modified.
The Adrian Dominican Sisters join with people around the world in prayer for the victims of the coronavirus, their families, and all healthcare workers who are courageously serving on the frontlines of this pandemic. In their letter to the community announcing this “prudential preventative action,” the five members of the General Council wrote that the measures were being implemented “for the common good of our own community and the larger communities in which we live and serve.”
