Dominican Sisters (O.P.) Dominican
Sisters live in many locations throughout
the U.S. We share a common heritage and
are influenced by differences in our geography and history. As Dominicans, we claim
preaching as our mission, supported by a
life of prayer and study in community. In
apostolic congregations, members often live
near our ministry locations. Our preaching
may take many forms, such as parish or
diocesan ministry, education or healthcare,
advocacy for justice, legal aid, the arts,
spirituality, or missionary activity. In all our
ministries Dominican women strive for integrity in serving God and creation. Women
in their 20s to 40s are invited to contact a
Dominican congregation for specific information about the process for joining this
mission as a vowed member. Women are
also invited to obtain information about retreat opportunities and volunteer programs
at a nearby Dominican community. Locate
one by visiting our website: www.domlife.
