Seek Truth • Make Peace • Reverence Life

Sponsored Institutions

Sponsorship is an ongoing relationship whereby the Adrian Dominican Sisters and an institution influence each other in ways that further the mission of both institution and the Congregation. Today the Adrian Dominican Sisters are engaged in a sponsorship model best described as a partnership with the laity for shared ministry. We value and welcome the laity as co-ministers in collaboration with the Congregation for the administration and stewardship of it institutions.
