What drew me to the Adrian Dominican Sisters
When I met our Sisters in my country in 1993, I became captivated by their passion to: Preach Truth, Make Peace, and Reverence Life. I also learned to read the Word according to the signs of our times while developing a loving, deep, and intimate relationship with our Beloved God and all creation.

What excites me about religious life today
I am very excited about the many possibilities we have today, as we gather with young sisters from all over the country, sharing and enriching one another with our diverse spiritualties. Thus, I believe in the future of religious life and I feel blessed of being part of it!

I was captivated by the Adrian Sisters passion as a grade school student in school in Chicago. I know what you mean and how you had to follow their example to lead, pray and live with that passion too! In the 60's, the FAITH dedication and devotion of Religious Women inspired me because it offered me a Woman's Initiative through the Catholic Church
after I graduated from High School. I was so excited to join the Community and though I didn't take Final Vows, I returned home a much happier and better woman. I hope that you will always love and cherish "Dominican Life" too:):)
