Have you ever wondered exactly who the Adrian Dominican Sisters are, what they do and what the inside of their motherhouse looks like? The Adrian Dominican Sisters invite you to find out personally from the sisters themselves during a special event.
In conjunction with National Catholic Sisters Week, March 8-14, the Adrian Dominican Sisters invite the public to “Getting to Know the Sisters” on March 11 at their motherhouse, 1257 E. Siena Heights, Arian, adjacent to Siena Heights University. Beginning with 10:30 a.m. Mass in Holy Rosary Chapel celebrated by Father Thomas Murphy, OSFS, pastor of St. Mary Parish in Adrian. Mass will be followed by a reception and the opportunity to “Speed Date a Sister” engaging in 10-minute conversations with 11 sisters. The afternoon also will include guided tours, refreshments and videos of interviews with sisters. The event will conclude at 2 p.m.
“Getting to Know the Sisters” is one of many events taking place nationwide during National Catholic Sisters Week. NCSW was begun in 2014 to educate the public about the lives and calling of U.S. women religious and the great diversity of their ministries. An additional hope is that as more single Catholic women learn about the joys of religious life, more will feel drawn into this life.
