February 15, 2024, Adrian, Michigan – The Adrian Dominican Congregation was one of 12 signatories – religious congregations and bishops from the Northwest United States – to a statement calling for a humanitarian ceasefire of the war in the Middle East and a return to negotiations for a two-state solution to the continuing conflict in Israel.

“We deplore the violence of the Hamas attack against Israel, just as we deplore the disproportionate violence against Palestinians in Gaza with months of indiscriminate bombing by Israeli forces – all while medical and humanitarian assistance are withheld from innocent civilians,” the statement reads. The religious leaders also noted their “great concern” over the widening conflict and the “significant increase” in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia throughout the world.

“As Catholics, we pray for a peaceful end to the war in Israel and Gaza, which is destroying innocent lives and devastating families, and invite all people of faith to pray and advocate for a peaceful resolution,” the religious leaders wrote. 

Based in Adrian, Michigan, the Adrian Dominican Sisters in 2003 merged with the Edmonds Dominican Sisters, who were based in the Archdiocese of Seattle.
