We welcome you to join us in our journey, emboldened by faith and serving with joy.

Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids is a congregation of women religious emboldened by faith, serving with joy. 

Religious life is a vocation to live the Gospel values in a deliberate way. “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire,” said St. Catherine of Siena, one of our patron saints. The freedom, so explicit in her words, has led each of our Sisters to share themselves with the world through ministries of all kinds.

During this time and place in history, YOU can change the world.

St. Dominic and St. Catherine of Siena, our patron saints, spoke and lived the Word of God preaching mercy and hope against inhumanity. Courageously, they questioned systemic thinking and behaviors, and in doing so, changed history. They are among many women and men of history whose ideas, values, beliefs, and manner of living changed the world.


We are rooted in both the Word of God and the Dominican tradition of the Catholic Church, we strive for a balance of prayer, community, study, and service in our lives.
