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.

For the safety of all, especially the Sisters who live on our campus, please refrain from coming to Weber Center if you are not feeling well.

A deeply moving new book by distinguished theologian Elizabeth A. Johnson is featured this month at the Weber Center Shop. "Come, Have Breakfast: Meditations on God and the Earth" has recently become a favorite here on the campus of the Adrian Dominican Sisters.

From the publisher, Orbis Books:
"In her latest work, prize-winning theologian Elizabeth Johnson views planet Earth, its beauty and threatened state, through the lens of scripture. Each luminous meditation offers a snapshot of one aspect of the holy mystery who creates, indwells, redeems, vivifies, and sanctifies the whole world. Together, they offer a panoramic view of the living God who loves the earth, accompanies all its creatures in their living and their dying, and moves us to care for our uncommon common home.
Elizabeth A. Johnson, a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph, is Distinguished Professor of Theology Emerita, Fordham University, NYC. A former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America and also of the American Theological Society, an ecumenical association, she is winner of the John Courtney Murray Award for distinguished achievement in theology, and numerous other awards. Her book She Who Is received the Grawemeyer Award in Religion. Following her retirement, she was inducted into Fordham University’s Hall of Honor. Among her many books are Friends of God and Prophets: A Feminist Theological Reading of the Communion of Saints; Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God; Truly Our Sister: A Theology of Mary in the Communion of Saints; and Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love. Her previous Orbis books include Creation and the Cross and Abounding in Kindness: Writings for the People of God."
