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.

A goal of the River Raisin Institute’s Climate Literacy Program is to educate young people about care of Earth. Support from the grant ensures that youth living in the Great Lakes region have educational resources to bring awareness of the effects of climate change to students, and through them to their families and the community. The classroom climate literacy program provides animal armatures and curriculum materials linking culture, local history, the environment, and the threat of climate change to more than 450 students.
