who we are

Emboldened by faith, serving with joy.

celebrating jubilee

catchingfireThe Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids honor the commitment of our members when a Sister reaches a specific number of years in her religious life: twenty-five, fifty, sixty, seventy, seventy-five and eighty.

Each chose consecrated life as her vocation. Each is emboldened by faith and serving with joy. Each builds upon the legacy of 800 years of Dominican faith and faithfulness.
