The Dominican Order has treasured liturgical prayer since its beginning in the thirteenth century. Liturgical Prayer is an essential way in which we Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids live out our chosen way of life. The richness of our prayer grounds us in Holy Mystery and helps us to be authentic in today’s world. As Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids, we have been in the forefront of meaningful liturgy. Today we continue to claim our liturgical action as a unique opportunity to model and foster the Church and spirit of Vatican II. The quality of preaching, musical leadership and inclusivity in roles and relationships in the gathered assembly are of primary importance to us.
