our ministry

We share with others the Word of God — words of life and hope — through our many diverse ministries.

dominican chapel

Dominican Chapel Marywood is a sacred space that welcomes all for prayer and quiet. A diverse community gathers for Sunday Eucharist to celebrate God’s saving love in our daily lives. Rooted in Dominican Spirituality, the assembly promotes inclusive liturgy, the preaching mission and empowerment for service. Nourished by God’s Word and by Eucharist we go forth to serve God.

chapel of the word

Chapel of the Word  is named for the Dominican charism that challenges us to be preachers of the Word. Situated in Marywood Health Center, the doors into the chapel open to a place of prayer and  devotion. Once inside, the wide windows reflect clouds and sky. It is a sacred space — uncluttered, airy, serene, contemplative with light changing as the sky and landscape reflect the seasons. 
All are welcome to this place of peace.


Visitors are welcome at Dominican Chapel Marywood and Chapel of the Word. Both Chapels were designed by liturgical designers Barbara Chenicek, OP and Rita Schiltz, OP, INAI Studio, Adrian, Michigan.
