The Adrian Dominican Sisters, an international congregation of more than 700 vowed women religious and 200 Associates, minister in 25 states, Puerto Rico, and five countries: Canada, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Norway, and Taiwan. In all of our ministries—education, health care, pastoral and retreat ministry, the arts, social work, ecology, and peace and justice advocacy—we strive to live out our Vision: to seek truth, make peace, reverence life.

We trace our roots to St. Dominic in the 13th Century. With our Associates and our Co-workers, and with the other members of the Dominican family throughout the world, we continue our Dominican tradition of preaching through prayer, study, common life, and ministry.

Adrian Dominican Associates are women and men, at least 18 years of age—married, single, widowed or divorced—who make a non-vowed commitment to partner with the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Associates live in many parts of the United States and in the Dominican Republic, come from various ethnic and educational backgrounds, and have a variety of interests. While maintaining their own lifestyle and remaining financially independent, Associates participate in various spiritual, social, and ministerial experiences with the Sisters, as well as attending Congregational events.

Adrian Dominican Associates For nearly 30 years, women and men who seek spiritual enrichment, a dynamic faith community, and a way to help bring about change in the world have joined the Adrian Dominican Sisters as Associates. It is a way to live out the Dominican charism of seeking truth and preaching the Good News in a non-vowed commitment.

Candidates for Associate Life undergo a period of formation, during which they study Dominican history and spirituality and come to know the Mission and Vision of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. For information about joining Associate Life, contact Mary Lach, Director 517-266-3531
