Coming Events

Spirituality of Dominican Leadership webcast is Dec. 11

The webcast with Sister Margaret Ormond, OP, speaking on “The Spirit of Dominican Leadership: Responding to the Call of Shared Responsibility” is coming up in a couple of weeks. This presentation will invite participants to explore and release our God-given gifts through the network of relationships that we know as the common good.

For those who have signed up or wish to still do so, here is some new pertinent information you will need:

  • Participants are invited to read Timothy Radcliffe’s letter to the Order “Dominican Freedom and Responsibility: Towards a Spirituality of Government.” This article is for background information only, nothing more. It can be found in his book “Sing a New Song” or it can also be accessed online.
  • To access the webinar, please click on one of the following links:
  • If you want to check in ahead of time to make sure everything is working as it should, the forum will be open at 11:30 a.m. EST (30 minutes ahead of the start time of the presentation)
  • If you wish to communicate during the presentation itself, please use either of these addresses: carnoldop@gmail.com (to submit a question or comment via e-mail) or carnold.op (for Skype capabilities)

This webcast is sponsored by Kaleidoscope, but open to participants of all ages. Though participants can take part in the webcast alone, all are encouraged to gather with other interested parties in a common location in order to share in the discussion on a local level. Gatherings have been set up in San Rafael (hosted by Sally Lowell and Patty Voss), New York (hosted by Barb Kane and Terry Rickard), New Orleans (hosted by Mary Jones), and Columbus (hosted by Kaleidoscope Standing Committee). If anyone is interested in hosting a group in your local area, please let us know.

Kaleidoscope Standing Committee is a committee of the Dominican Alliance and Dominican Federation whose purpose is threefold:

  1. To promote opportunities for relationship building;
  2. To network, especially for the sake of mission;
  3. To foster leadership.
