August 14, 2023, Adrian, Michigan – In recognition of the 2023 Season of Creation, the Adrian Dominican Sisters offer a weekly Peace Prayer at 4:00 p.m. Tuesdays, September 5,12, 19, and 26, and October 3, 2023. The prayer is held in the Rose Room of the Dominican Life Center on the Motherhouse Campus, 1257 E. Siena Heights Drive, Adrian. 

The Season of Creation is a global, ecumenical celebration held annually from September 1, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, recognized by many denominations as the patron saint of ecology. 

Christians come together during this season to renew their commitment to their Creator and God’s creation through prayer, action, and celebration. This year’s theme, “Let Justice and Peace Flow,” is taken from Amos 5:24: “Let justice roll like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.” 

All are welcome to attend the Peace Prayer in person or through a live stream at https://adriandominicans.org/Live-Stream

The Dominican Life Center is located at the Adrian Dominican Sisters Motherhouse campus. Traveling east on Siena Heights Drive, pass the Adrian Rea Literacy Center and turn left just before the solar panel-covered parking lot. Follow the signs to the Dominican Life Center.
