September 20, 2022, Adrian, Michigan – Are you a single Catholic woman, age 19 to 35, who is contemplating religious life – or do you know of such a woman? The Adrian Dominican Sisters invite you to spend a weekend with them to discern your call and “Come and See” the life of a vowed Dominican Sister.

The next Come and See Weekend is October 14-16, 2022, at Weber Retreat and Conference Center, on the Motherhouse Campus of the Adrian Dominican Sisters, 1257 E. Siena Heights Drive, Adrian, Michigan. The weekend will give discerners the opportunity to meet other women exploring God’s call; spend time in prayer, reflection, silence, sharing, and fun; learn about the life of a Sister and the Dominican life; tour the Motherhouse Campus and engage in conversation with Sisters; and attend Sunday Liturgy with the Adrian Dominican Sisters. 

The weekend is free. You are our guests. Register online at https://tinyurl.com/ADSDiscern. For more information, email Sister Katherine Frazier, OP, at kfrazier@adriandominicans.org or call or text her at 260-229-3045.

August 25, 2022, St. Louis, Missouri – As Sister Elise García, OP, completed her three-year leadership commitment to the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), Executive Director Sister Carol Zinn, SSJ, praised her for the extraordinary spirit she brought to the organization during the challenging times of COVID-19 and other global crises. She described Sister Elise as a “manifestation of global sisterhood” with “an incredible capacity to create integrative partnerships, and clearly the Gospel message in the public square is what your life is about.”

The words of praise came during the LCWR’s general assembly, held August 9-12, 2022, in St. Louis, Missouri. This was the first time since the pandemic that the annual assembly was held in person.

Sister Elise, a General Councilor for the Adrian Dominican Sisters, was elected President-elect of the LCWR during the 2019 general assembly in Scottsdale, Arizona. She served as President-Elect, 2019-2020; President, 2020-2021; and Past President, 2021-2022. Before her election, she served on the LCWR National Board.

The LCWR is comprised of the elected leadership of Catholic Sisters, representing about 80% of women religious in the United States.

Sister Elise was elected to the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ General Council during its General Chapter in 2016. During the 2022 General Chapter held in late June, she was elected to serve as Prioress, succeeding Sister Patricia Siemen, OP. Sister Elise and the newly elected General Council – Sisters Lorraine Réaume, OP, Vicaress and General Councilor, and Sisters Janice Brown, OP, Bibiana “Bless” Colasito, OP, and Corinne Sanders, OP – will take office on October 8, 2022.
