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.

Every year, humanity puts 1.3 billion tons of food in landfills. The Voices for Earth Justice (VEJ) project seeks to raise the awareness of this issue to people of faith and show them how to eat for the good of people and planet. Since sharing a meal is one of the traditions all people of faith seem to hold in common, VEJ believes food also has the power to build good will among people of various faith traditions. Using Ministry Trust funds, VEJ plans to “reach and teach” responsible stewardship of Earth and nutrition to many hundreds of people who are residents of VEJ’s Hope House and Gardens and to surrounding houses of worship, religious organizations, and schools in the greater Detroit area.
