Our congregation, the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids, is an apostolic community of vowed women religious.
We respond to a call to live our commitment made in baptism: to grow in the love of God. The pillars of our lives are: prayer, ministry/service, study, and common life/community.
We endeavor to express in our lives the Dominican motto: to praise, to bless, and to preach.
Through ministry, community, study, and prayer we share Christ’s message — redemptive love that reflects God’s desire for a just world. Our hope is to continue opening ourselves to the power and presence of the Holy Spirit — and to be a flame of truth, love, hope, and mercy.
Inspired by the spirit of our founder St. Dominic de Guzmán, we join the worldwide Order of Preachers (OP) carrying out an 800-year mission: to praise, to bless and to preach.
