Wish List

Our donors have always been incredibly generous in their gifts to the Sisters. Please consider helping us with some very practical needs that are on our wish list.

DLC Beauty Salon Renovations

On September 6, 2018, retired Adrian Dominican Sisters residing at the Dominican Life Center (DLC), along with DLC Administrators, Chaplains, and Co-workers, blessed a place of beauty, friendship and restoration: the newly renovated DLC Beauty Salon.

"This is a sacred place," said Sister Mary Rae Waller, OP, Chaplain and Pastoral Minister. "We have claimed it as our sacred space, so all the love and light, the renewal, the courage, the encouragement, the tears that flow – all of that is for the health of our whole community."

Many of you, our generous donors, helped bring this sacred place into reality – and for your generosity, we are so very grateful! While the renovation is complete, additional gifts would be most appreciated. If you would like to support this project, please click here.

Dressers and Nightstands for the Sisters in DLC

Many of the dressers and nightstands that the Sisters use in the Dominican Life Center have been in the building either since 1965 or the early 1980s. It is time to replace these for the safety and security of the Sisters. The new nightstands feature a locking caster system so they are sturdy but easily movable.

New Recliners/Lift Chairs for Sisters
