The Adorers founded Sacred Heart Junior College for religious and lay women in 1933. That institution evolved into Newman University, whose mission is to empower graduates to transform society.
Connect with the Adorers and others living lives of compassion and justice. Explore the many ways lay people make our family whole, including Associates and Sojourners!
Readings and Psalm responses taken from the Lectionary for Masses with Children. Included are weekly lessons created by Adorer-theologians using the lens of the spirituality of St. Maria.
Our foundress Saint Maria De Mattias has a quote that encourages us to remain dedicated to “bringing about that beautiful order of things.” In our ministries, our community life, and our common spirituality, we strive to be compassionate presences, making God’s love known to all.
Most recently, this ministry of presence means we’ve been called upon to defend the land taken from us in Lancaster County. Our spirituality compels us to protect the vulnerable. This includes the land and people who will suffer from having the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline in their backyard. Please pray for and work with us.
