From a casual beginning in the middle of a Michigan cornfield, Adrian Dominican Sisters have gone on to influence countless lives as educators, health care professionals, social workers, and pastoral ministers. They have become a voice for those who have been silenced, advocates for those suffering injustice and companions for the poor and most vulnerable among us. In their roles as administrators, retreat leaders, artists and musicians, they discover new ways to preach the Word of God. The Sisters continue to make a difference in our world.
Thank you for supporting the ministries of our Sisters through the Ministry Trust! Here is one example.
Northwest Detroit Youth Coalition - nwdyc.org
Ellen Schmitz, OP, Board Member
The Northwest Detroit Youth Coalition ordinarily sponsors two month-long summer camps for youth ages 5-16. The grant provides funds for a part-time staff person to 10 coordinate and manage the summer camp programs for children living in Detroit neighborhoods that suffer from blight, drugs, and violence. Camp experiences, this year provided via Zoom, offer participants the opportunity to learn skills and experience the value of reverencing life by respecting one another. During this grant cycle, urban children have the opportunity for electronically transmitted instruction in physical education and for learning coping and peace-making skills.
