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.
Catherine Cobb Safe House, Operation Safety Net
Aneesah McNamee, OP, Board Member
Catherine Cobb Safe House is the only shelter and safe haven for women and their children experiencing domestic violence in Lenawee County. Ministry Trust funds have assisted clients in the development of individualized safety plans based on current and future relationship needs. Survivors and their children learn to build their resilience and reestablish violencefree households on the solid foundation of improved mental, social, and emotional well-being. Participants also deepen their understanding of trauma and its effect on family dynamics.
