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.

Sharon Park, OP, PREPARES Liaison for Diocese
PREPARES, the Pregnancy and Parenting Support Initiative, enables parishes in Washington State to enter into relationships with women and their families struggling to meet their children’s needs. PREPARES helps marginalized households become more resilient through direct service, vital support, and the opportunity for parents to strengthen their skills. The grant funds PREPARES en Español in the Yakima Diocese, allowing expanded outreach to pregnant women and their families in the Hispanic community in parishes in rural Spanish-speaking communities. The grant also partially funds a support group for teen mothers.
