The Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids are seekers of truth and empower others in the same pursuit.
We are founded for and committed to teaching and preaching the Word of God in what we say and what we do. We joyfully embrace our vocation to seek God as the sole desire of our heart and to be the compassion and justice of Jesus in our time and place. “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” ~ St. Catherine of Siena.
Papal Encyclical on Environment
The Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids affirm our Congregation’s 1992 Care of Earth Direction Statement:
We commit ourselves to foster the contemplative stance that all the earth is sacred and interconnected; respect and accountability for the earth are necessary to the survival of life. We affirm that actions which impact the environment will be preceded by the question: Is this action which I (we) are performing supportive of the environment?
As we continue to contemplate Care of Earth as a Congregation we encourage our community of friends to reflect on a poem by St. Francis of Assisi.
