|New Book Chronicles
the History of the
Adrian Dominican Sisters from 1924-1933
December 19, 2006 – Adrian, Michigan –
Seeds Scattered and Grown, the second volume of Adrian
Dominican history written by Sister Nadine Foley, OP, is now available.
The book chronicles the Adrian Dominican history from 1924-1933,
the Mother Augustine Walsh years. The second volume follows the
first, Amid the Alien Corn, by Mary Philip Ryan, OP.
"What was once a field of alien corn was tilled and furrowed
to become a friendly ground, rich with the promise of new seed.
Acting upon that promise, the followers of Mother Camilla Madden,
OP, zealously built upon the foundation she had laid. They were
able to bring the new congregation from its obscurity in a rural
cornfield to recognition as a foremost contributor to the rise of
Catholic education in the United States. The 10 years chronicled
here were indeed a period of Seeds Scattered and Grown." [Excerpt
