Our Mission

To Praise. To Bless. To Preach.

Dominican Sisters and Associates of Grand Rapids respond to a call to live our commitment made in baptism: to grow in the love of God.

Like all the women and men who came before us, over 800 years, the Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids believe that by living intentionally, in community with others, sharing joy and blessings, extending love and mercy, praising God through many forms of prayer, we can transform the world.

Grow. Learn. Explore. Be.

Dominican Center

Dominican Center is a heart center. A center where seekers and people of all faiths may be transformed wholly and holy. At Dominican Center, people come to explore the interconnectedness of Creation and humanity and the boundlessness of love.

Associate Life

An Associate heart is a servant heart — so needed in our world today.

Dominican Associates are non-vowed women and men who desire to practice their Christian faith in the spirit of the Dominican Order of Preachers. More than 150 Associates have made commitment to Associate Life, supporting one another and bringing Dominican values to their family, community, place of worship and workplace.
