Meet Us In Person!

So, you are thinking about religious life and want to know where to start. We have several easy ways for you to learn more about the Adrian Dominicans.

Meet Us In Person!

We currently minister across the United States and internationally. Wherever you are, it is very likely that at least one of our sisters is nearby. If you would like to talk to a sister in your geographic area, we can easily arrange a meeting. Please feel free to call Sister Carleen Maly, OP, the Director of Vocations, or call the sister in your region directly to arrange a meeting.
