Classmate of Cardinal Wilton Gregory Recalls Influence of Adrian Dominican Teachers

December 16, 2020, Chicago – In a letter to the Chicago Sun Times, Illinois State Senator Jacqueline Y. Collins echoed the gratitude of her classmate, now Cardinal Wilton Gregory, for the education and encouragement they received from their Adrian Dominican teachers at St. Carthage School in Chicago.

“It was the dedication and compassion of the Adrian Dominican Sisters that empowered us to reach beyond our experiences and environments,” she wrote. “They believed in the promise and possibility of their Black students and their faith in us was the wind beneath our dreams.”
