Life Among Sisters
of the greatest values the Dominican Sisters uphold is
community. The meaning of community has evolved over the
years and today has multiple expressions , but nonetheless
we remain connected in a special way through community.
In community we find diverse opinions and prayer styles,
respect for the individuality and needs of each in light
of the common good, and Sisters living in small or large
groups, as well as singly. For the Dominican Sisters,
community is about relationships and involves direct and
loving communication, openness, and flexibility to change.
Together we respond to the needs of others and support
the preaching of the Gospel.
To see how we celebrate, come to a Jubilee.
To see how we pray, pray with us.
To see how we minister, work with us.
To see how we search for sacred Truth, study with us.
To see how we work for justice, stand with us.
To see how we remember one another, come to a funeral.
To see how we live, COME and SEE!
We Dominicans are worldwide and can say that we have family
in Iraq and Peru, in Puerto Rico and Honduras, in Zimbabwe
and Zambia . We value relationships with our sisters and
brothers around the globe and deepen them through mutual
support – visits, telephone or e-mail conversations,
sharing educational resources, and friendships. Wherever
there is injustice, oppression, or strife, there are Dominicans
trying to preach the gospel of justice, love, and peace.
