Weber Retreat and Conference Center Launches New, Interactive Website

May 11, 2018, Adrian, Michigan – Checking out retreats and workshops, registering online for a program, and purchasing a gift from the Weber Shop have all just gotten easier with Weber Retreat and Conference Center’s new website, webercenter.org.

“I am so excited that we have launched a new Weber Center website,” said Sister Janet Doyle, OP, Director of Weber Center. “In addition to having a beautiful new design, the site has many new features, including a virtual tour, the ability to purchase some Weber Center Shop items online, and easy program registration.”

Nonprofit groups that want to rent space at Weber Center for special events can find the information they need and begin the process to reserve space through the website. Groups wanting to see the facilities can see the offered amenities: conference rooms, auditorium, private bedrooms with baths, and outdoor areas. 

The website project was coordinated by Sheila Wathen, Assistant Director of Communications for the Adrian Dominican Sisters, with technical work completed by Vangie Bazán and Susan E. Klein of Sister Creek Studios in San Antonio, Texas.

A ministry of the Adrian Dominican Sisters since 1970, Weber Retreat and Conference Center is rooted in the Dominican foundations of study, prayer, community, and ministry. It is a place for people of all faiths to experience world-class programming and to enjoy quiet places for individual prayer, meditation, and contemplation, and for nonprofit organizations to host their programs.

Statement of Adrian Dominican Sisters on U.S. Withdrawal from Iran Nuclear Deal

May 8, 2018 — The General Council of the Adrian Dominican Sisters has issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s decision on May 8, 2018, to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal.

The Adrian Dominican Sisters decry the Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. Despite its flaws, the multilateral deal is widely recognized as having achieved its goal of preventing Iran from continuing to develop its nuclear weapons capacity. 

This imprudent, destabilizing action not only threatens to bring back the specter of a nuclear-armed Iran, but also further isolates the United States from global leadership, raises tensions among allies, and sows discord among adversaries. 

“Blessed are the peacemakers!” (Mt 5:9)

As women of faith, we call upon our nation’s elected leaders to act judiciously to mitigate the deleterious effects of this decision. May their actions be, as the Prophet Isaiah proclaimed, “like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land.” (Isaiah 32:2)
