Dominican Order of Preachers

The Adrian Dominican Sisters belong to the Order of Preachers founded by St. Dominic. The branches of the Dominican family include: brothers, contemplative nuns, congregations of contemplative and apostolic sisters, lay persons in fraternities or secular institutes, and secular priests in fraternities. "Each one has its own character, its own autonomy. However, by taking part in the charism of St. Dominic, they share between them a single vocation to be preachers in the Church" (Chapter of Mexico, 1992).
