September 7, 2016, Wilmette, Illinois – Legacy is about interconnectedness. It is about honoring the past, living in the present, and building for the future.
The new Legacy Wall displayed outside of chapel of Regina Dominican tells the story of the Adrian Dominican Sisters who are integral to the life and history of the high school. Since 1958, more than 150 sisters have served as administrators and teachers in our school. Through their leadership, teaching, and interaction with students, they brought to life the charism of the Dominican Order and the Mission and Vision of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Their legacy continues to this day.
The Legacy Wall reminds us that Regina Dominican has a rich history. The power of this history enables us to live fully in the present while envisioning a vibrant future for the school. It provides a strong foundation of prayer, study, community, and service to support all that we do today and in the days to come.
We give praise and thanks to God for the many Sisters who helped create our proud history. We give thanks for the continued sponsorship of the Adrian Dominican Sisters who give us life through their mission and vision.
Regina Dominican’s current students are also integral to the life and legacy of the school. In this video of the freshman retreat, edited by Lauren Murphy, students and faculty members show why they love Regina Dominican.
August 26, 2016, Adrian, Michigan – The Adrian Dominican Sisters join with others in prayer for Sister Paula Merrill, SCN, and Sister Margaret Held, SSF, who were found murdered in their home in rural Mississippi on August 25. We extend our heartfelt condolences to their families; friends; members of their religious communities, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and School Sisters of St. Francis; the staff of the Lexington Medical Clinic; and the thousands of people they cared for in their health ministry. Together, may our prayers bring consolation to all who grieve, and an end to violence in our world.
