Our Roots

A ministry of the Adrian Dominican Sisters since 1970, Weber Retreat & Conference Center is rooted in the Dominican foundations of study, prayer, community, and ministry.

Weber Center is a place for people of all faiths to experience world-class programming; enjoy quiet spaces for individual prayer, meditation, and contemplation; and for nonprofits to host their programs in a state-of-the-art affordable facility.

Weber Center is situated on 100 acres of wooded land on the campus of the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ Motherhouse in southeast Michigan.
