September 5, 2019 – As human beings with the ability for self-reflection, we can learn much in our spiritual journey by reconnecting with nature or connecting at a deeper level. “Nature as Teacher, Mentor, and Model” encourages participants to spend time outside to explore what we can learn from nature. The program is offered from 7:00 p.m. Saturday, September 28, 2019 through 4:30 p.m. Sunday, September 29, 2019 at Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
Sister Gloria Rivera, IHM, will guide participants through the experience. Coordinator of Great Lakes Bioneers Detroit, an organization that supports sustainable communities, Sister Gloria believes that social justice and environmental justice are one movement. She holds a master’s degree in religious studies and will share what she has learned as a student for six years of biomimicry, which focuses on how human beings can apply nature’s patterns and strategies.

July 11, 2019, Cincinnati, Ohio – The community at St. Antoninus Parish recently celebrated 75 years of faith. The Adrian Dominican Sisters were an important part of the parish’s heritage. At the invitation of Archbishop of Cincinnati John T. McNicholas, the Congregation in 1948 sent Sisters to staff the parish’s new school. From the school’s earliest years to 1974, 31 Adrian Dominican Sisters ministered there. The heritage continues, as this year’s eighth-grade graduating class was the school’s 70th class.
