A Journey of Transformation
Hoffman brings insight to National Religious Conference

(Appleton, Wis.) – Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc. will once again bring its expertise to the annual Resource Center for Religious Institutes (RCRI) National Conference.

Hoffman’s Julie Heiberger and Mark Boehlke will be joined by Sr. Fran Nadolny, OP, and Sr. Corinne Sanders, OP, for “A Case Study of Transformation: The Adrian Dominican Sisters’ Story” on Thursday, Oct. 28.

“Many religious organizations are going through a transition driven by demographic and other changes,” said Heiberger, Hoffman’s women religious market leader. “As a result, religious communities like the Adrian Dominican Sisters find that they need to adapt their approach to mission, community, and stewardship of resources.”

The presentation will focus on the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ recent journey of transformation. “We worked with the sisters to create a plan for consolidating assets, reducing their carbon footprint, keeping the legacy of the land, and maintaining their campus ministry,” Boehlke said. “It was a journey to enable them to live more ecologically and economically.”

Hoffman has a rich history of partnering with women religious congregations, having served more than 55 congregations in 28 states throughout the country in the past 25 years. Hoffman’s expertise in sustainable planning, design, construction, and renewable energy has helped congregations perpetuate their missions while having a positive impact on the environment.

This is the 11th time in the past 13 years that Hoffman has been invited to present at the RCRI National Conference.

The Resource Center for Religious Institutes is an organization created to serve the needs of Catholic communities of religious women and men. They help congregations navigate the many complexities related to taxes and tax-exemption, corporate structure, internal organizational setup, finance, administration and canon law. They work with hundreds of religious institutes and societies of apostolic life from all over the United States and from several foreign countries.
